Flash Dinner: Thai Style Rice Noodle Salad

This is more of a make-ahead dinner than a flash dinner but it still goes reasonably quickly if you’ve made the dressing in advance.

The main ingredient is rice noodles
(follow cooking directions on the package)

Everything else is optional. Top your rice noodles with


  • 1 – 2 cups shredded Napa cabbage
  • mung bean sprouts
  • coarsely grated carrot
  • thinly sliced red bell pepper strips
  • thinly sliced red onion
  • quartered cucumber slices


  • chicken strips (leftovers?)
  • dry seasoned or smoked tofu
  • shrimp (so says my husband. I’m allergic)

Dress with the Thai-Style Lime-Peanut dressing and top with

  • coarsely chopped roasted salted peanuts
  • or cilantro
  • or crispy chow mein noodles
