Celebrate fresh and flavorful summer tastes with a delicious Cold Asian Noodle Salad!
I love getting together with friends and family at this time of year. From the food to the guests, everything is a little more laid back and relaxed.
Food always plays an integral part in these get togethers, and I look forward to sharing memorable dishes, like this Cold Asian Noodle Salad!
This Cold Asian Noodle Salad is a favorite in my home, and I love serving it at barbecues, potlucks, and more.
It makes a great side dish or a main course for vegetarians and vegans.
Cold Asian Noodle Salad
The base of this recipe is linguine, and my first choice when shopping for pasta is always Barilla.
It cooks up perfectly al dente every time, and it makes preparing a delicious dinner quick, easy, and versatile. There are a million things you can do with a bowl of pasta … visit Barilla.com for even more recipes!
Once the pasta is cooked, you’ll mix it with an easy to make spicy sesame-soy dressing and a bevy of fresh vegetables.
I used raw veggies, but this Cold Asian Noodle Salad would taste wonderful with your favorite grilled veggies, too, so keep that in mind the next time you heat up the grill!
Can I let you in on a secret? I forgot to add the edamame before taking these photos!
When I was making this recipe, I popped a bag of edamame in the microwave, then went about making the salad. I took the pictures, ate a bowlful, and then a day later discovered the bag of edamame in my microwave. Oops!
Needless to say, this Cold Asian Noodle Salad ise even more delicious with the edamame included, so just pretend you can see it in there. This salad would also be tasty with some baked tofu or another protein added, so feel free to get creative!
No summer BBQ or party would be complete without a signature drink, so I paired my salad with a refreshing Blueberry Mint Sweet Tea that so simple to make!
Now that I’m living in the south, I’ve got to have my sweet tea! It’s everywhere here in Texas, and it’s the perfect way to beat the heat.
This Blueberry Mint Sweet Tea is a fun twist on the classic recipe, and it couldn’t get any easier to make!
To make a glass of this yummy sweet tea, you’ll start with a small handful of blueberries and a few mint leaves. Mash the berries and mint up, then fill your glass with ice, and top it off with your favorite sweet tea … it’s that easy!
Together, this Cold Asian Noodle Salad and Blueberry Mint Sweet Tea are the perfect BBQ solution!
