Easy Chinese Noodle Salad Recipe (Liang Ban Mein)

I love everything about noodle either Asian style of noodle or Italian pasta. Our family enjoy varieties of noodle dishes ranging from stir-fry, soup to salad. Noodle salad is one of the easiest salad. Any one can make it at home. It's very simple but tasty . The dressing is light and low in fat.

This is my super duper noodle salad recipe, a vegetarian salad for everyone. Its loaded with fiber. This gingerly salad is just amazing. Serve it cold or at room temperature. If you love hot spicy salad, add 1 teaspoon of chili sauce or sriracha sauce. This salad is usually served on hot summer days. It's great for picnic or bbq party.

This recipe calls for Chinese egg noodles, but you can substitute it with any ramen noodles such as Maruchan and Nissin instant ramen.
