THIS is going to be your new go-to food option guys. It is one of my favorite dishes to whip up and it is easy to make. This is one of those meals to make and keep in the fridge all week long. The flavors marinate more and more each day. And this is a great dish to bring to school or work or on the go because it also is delicious cold and room temperature. So easy to bring around with you.

I cannot wait to hear what you guys think of this recipe!! Don’t forget to tag me on Instagram and Tiktok if you try it.

What key ingredients are in this Thai noodle salad and dressing:

  • Pad thai rice noodles – I LOVE adding these into the dish to make it heartier and kind of like a cold Pad Thai noodle meal.
  • Edamame beans – I find these in the freezer section and cook in microwave until ready (follow instructions on the packaging).
  • Red cabbage – you could use green too if you prefer, either works!
  • Carrots – you can buy shredded carrots or shred yourself.
  • Red bell pepper – I love using this for added crunch and deliciousness.
  • Peanuts – I forgot to put these in when I shot this recipe (lol SOS!) so I guess you can say they are optional but I recommend adding them in for crunch.
  • Scallions – these add so much flavor to the meal too and a little texture.
  • Peanut butter – this is the main ingredient in the dressy. I recommend using a creamy and all natural brand with only “peanuts and sea salt” as ingredients.
  • Coconut aminos – this is my go-to instead of soy sauce. Much healthier and gluten-free and it is tasty!!
  • Rice vinegar – I have been loving rice vinegar in my dressings – adds great flavor and compliments the other dressing ingredients too.
  • Sesame oil – You could use another oil too but the sesame oil adds great flavor.
