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.
