Vietnamese Chicken Noodle Salad is a bright and healthy dinner idea that makes for a delicious meal. And it can be made in just 10 minutes!
This is my favourite kind of dinner. I love something that is light and bright, and super healthy, and I think Vietnamese flavours always hit the spot.
While this meal makes a great meal on it’s own, it’s also a great salad to serve if you’re entertaining. Some of my other favourite salad recipes are Mum’s Creamy Potato Salad, Curried Egg Salad, and Summer Pasta Salad.
Tips for making Vietnamese Chicken Noodle Salad:
For a quicker recipe, use a BBQ chicken. Whip up this meal in minutes by using a store-bought BBQ chicken, and simply shred it to add it to this beautiful salad recipe.
Don’t like coriander, leave it out. I know coriander is not everyone’s favourite herb, albeit delicious – it’s definitely one of mine. You can leave it out of this recipe if you prefer.
Kids don’t like herbs? if you want to simplify this dish and make it more kid-friendly, leave the herbs out. Instead add in some of their favourite steamed vegetables, or simple chopped carrot and cucumber.
Got a nut allergy? You also omit the peanuts. And if you don’t like peanuts, you can swap them out for slivered almonds, or even chopped cashews.
Another way to serve this salad, is to scoop it into crisp lettuce cups. Plonk the salad in a bowl in the middle of the table, along with some lettuce cups, and make a delicious, hands-on dinner idea.
