Lately life has been wild. Do you have days (okay, maybe months) like that? 

Partly it’s my own fault—I just took a 10-day vacation to the Southwest to celebrate my daughter’s college graduation. I was still in school myself which means I took a final exam and did homework from my hotel room. First world problems, I know! But check out my Instagram if you want to see the pictures!

Salad close up

After all that, I have been super focused on cooking efficiently. Still healthy of course!

This Thai Noodle and Vegetable Salad is based on a hot dish I made called Chicken and Veggies in Spicy Peanut Sauce. It seemed like something that might adapt well to eating cold and making ahead. I even found a brown rice noodle for a healthier take on the pasta!

Ingredients

My other great find for this was bagged vegetables that had some julienned and some left in bite-sized chunks. Like a cross between slaw mix and small florets. And perfect for a lazy mom’s salad!

Cook then cool noodles

Mix Salad

That meant making this was basically mix up dressing, cook noodles for 2 minutes, chill and combine. Healthy. Easy. Make ahead.

Maybe I’m ready for summer after all!

      Thanks Juliana. I have been getting too far away from easy dishes–which is okay at times, but nice to have something super easy too!
