Thai Noodle Salad

September 13, 2011

Let me introduce you to one of our family favorites: Thai Noodle Salad!


It was introduced to us by BeckyMom a few years ago. We had been using the website Sparkpeople, which is great by the way, to track our calorie intake and exercise and all that jazz, and that’s where this baby was found.

Sparkpeople has a ton of really great recipes, our favorite being the Thai Noodle Salad. It’s something that I had never eaten before, and honestly, something I probably wouldn’t have thought to try, but thank goodness we had it at Reinman’s parents’ house a few years ago. We make it a lot now, the kids love it, and it’s something that I would highly recommend you try. Mmmm…

Thai Noodle Salad

recipe from our friends at Sparkpeople


  • 6 oz dried vermicelli
  • 1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup chicken broth
  • 2 T peanut butter
  • 1 T fresh lime juice
  • 1 tsp garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp fresh ginger, minced
  • 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper (we leave this out)
  • 1 & 1/2 cups cooked chicken, shredded
  • 1 sweet red pepper, thinly sliced
  • 3 green onions, cut diagonally into 1/2 inch strips
  • 1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
  • lime wedges for garnish


  1. Cook vermicelli according to directions, drain, and set aside.
  2. In a medium saucepan, combine soy sauce, chicken broth, peanut butter, lime juice, garlic, ginger, and crushed red pepper. Cook over low-medium heat until peanut butter is melted.
  3. Add pasta and toss to coat evenly.
  4. Stir in cooked chicken, red pepper, onions, and cilantro.
  5. Garnish with lime wedges, and enjoy!

This recipe is so yummy. I hope ya’ll will give it a try! 🙂

  1. I made a double batch last week for supper, and the next day at work I asked the Colonel what he’d like for supper. He said leftover thai noodles. Knowing that both Mike and Andrew were at home, I told him, “don’t count on it”. I was right. We ended up having McDonald’s cheeseburgers instead. (Not anywhere near as delicious and I really like mcd cheeseburgers!!!!) Thai noodles is one dish I can count on to please everybody.

    • I know! The stuff is awesome. Thanks for introducing us to it! 🙂

  2. […] to eat, and found it. We haven’t been big on Thai food in this house, except for this Thai Noodle Salad and I’m hoping to change […]
