Next time you’re in need of a truly unique and delicious salad, try this Vietnamese chicken rice noodle salad – it will not disappoint.
I’m in with the flavors and freshness happening in this salad! So so SO in love.
As I was looking at all the fresh herbs in my garden and the quick pickled vegetables I had in my fridge, my mind was drawn back to a time I had this amazing chicken salad at a Vietnamese restaurant, years ago. I immediately knew what I was going to be making for dinner – a Vietnamese chicken rice noodle salad! I love that with Vietnamese salads all the components are on top of of the salad and then as you pour the dressing on you mix it together.
This salad really packs a flavor punch.
The chicken is marinated in lime juice, garlic and cilantro which makes it supper yummy in and of itself, but then when you add that on top of a bed of rice noodles and pour the delicious dressing on and mix everything together – it makes an unforgettable salad.
There are a few other things that make this such a great salad 1-it can be served warm (warm noodles and chicken) or cold (perfect for lunches!) 2-it is gluten free because the noodles one uses for this recipe are rice noodles (vermicelli noodles) 3-you can really customize it to whatever vegetables you have on hand, if you don’t have pickled vegetables that is ok too, you can just use sliced up veggies and 4-this salad can be made in under 30 minutes!
