Asian Chicken and Noodle Salad


This recipe is inspired by a similar salad from The Pioneer Woman. I’ve frugalized it and tweaked it so that it’s my very favorite salad – ever.

1 pound linguini, cooked according to package directions, rinsed and drained
4 grilled chicken breast halves, chopped
1/2 head green cabbage, shredded
1 head romaine lettuce, torn into bite sized pieces
1 red bell pepper, julienne cut
2 carrots, peeled and grated
3 green onions, chopped
1 can sliced water chestnuts
1/2 toasted slivered almonds
1 bunch cilantro, rinsed

Dressing:
6 Tablespoons soy sauce
2 1/2 Tablespoons rice wine vinegar
1/2 teaspoon crushed red papper flakes
1 teaspoon wasabi powder
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1/4 cup sesame oil
3/4 cup vegetable oil

We like to serve all the elements separately: chicken, noodles, vegetables, and dressing. This way everyone can choose how much he wants to put on his plate. It is absolutely delicious.

  1. Ooh, doesn’t this look good. I’ll bet the wasabi powder is a nice addition to the dressing.

    Yum-O! There are so many ingredients here that I don't stock; I'll have to come to your house for a taste. 😉 Thanks for entering the Make it From Scratch Carnival!

  3. Do you do anything to the cabbage first?

    OMG that stuff was so good. I just mixed it all together because I didn’t trust the kids to get their share of the vegetables. So good!

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
