Asian Harvest Noodle Salad

Asian Harvest Noodle Salad

This Asian Harvest Noodle Salad is an easy recipe and healthy late summer that features vermicelli rice noodles and a homemade low calorie Asian dressing. Our family loves easy meals, and especially noodles for salad bases, making them a fun and kid-friendly meal. We also love that the harvest vegetables (peppers, carrots and gorgeous rainbow chard) in this side dish are versatile and can easily be used in more than one dish throughout the week to avoid food waste! And when it comes to using up those delicious and abundant harvest vegetables available in the late summer season, this sesame Asian salad dressing makes them taste about as amazing as you can imagine!

You don't need to buy coleslaw dressing. If you're wondering what dressing to use for coleslaw, this recipe for the salad has a mayonnaise-based dressing that tastes authentically homemade. It is fast, easy to make, and I'll bet you have the ingredients on hand in your pantry already! Cabbage is a seasonal vegetable almost year round in Canada, which makes this one of our regular family dinner recipes on a budget that we enjoy. This post also includes a link to a seasonal vegetable calendar.
