almond lover’s asian-style noodle salad

I’m such a big fan of noodles. Not sure if it’s because they’re so satisfying or because they’re so fun to eat. Maybe it’s both! But either way, one of my favorite ways to slurp down noodles is along with Asian flavors. This is my almond-inspired take on cold peanut noodles. It has almonds in two ways; almond butter is whisked into the sauce for creaminess and toasted sliced almonds are sprinkled on top for bonus crunch. Combined, the nutty addition gives this bowl of love a punch of protein, vitamin E, and deliciousness! It also has lots of veggies to make it extra nutritious. By the way, this noodle salad is vegan, so enjoy it for Meatless Monday (and beyond)!
