Vermicelli Noodle Salad

Here is the recipe for the Vermicelli Noodle Salad that went with the Asian Wraps we posted last week. It was adapted from Guy Fieri’s Dang Cold Asian Noodle Salad.

This salad is great extra cold and on its own as a light meal on a hot day, though we did put it inside our wraps when we were starving. This is another make-at-home meal that will thrill you to have out of the way so you can focus on the things your trip is really about. Running, hiking, surfing, kayaking…Get out there and get hungry!

  1. Sounds delicious and easy to make! Not a fan of soy or olive sauce, but I guess that can be left out since there are plenty of other ingredients ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Hey there! I know this is kinda off topic however
    I’d figured I’d ask. Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe
    guest writing a blog article or vice-versa? My website addresses a lot
    of the same subjects as yours and I believe we could greatly benefit from each other.
    If you’re interested feel free to shoot me an email.

    1. Thanks for catching that Evaleh! What we meant is Rice Vinegar. Funny enough there was a similar confusion recently at my house when I put “rice wine vinegar” on the shopping list… It’s been corrected in the recipe now too. Thanks!
