Make a delicious Asian noodle salad with peanut butter dressing in simple and easy steps.
With the majority around me, that enjoys peanut butter more in sweet recipes like cookies or brownies or just on toast with some Marmalade to create a peanut butter jelly sandwich, I enjoy peanut butter in savoury recipes and end up adding a spoon of it to a nice warm Thai curry or use it as a salad dressing (like in this blog post)
This Asian noodle salad with peanut butter dressing is like burst of flavours in your mouth - the creamy peanut butter, mixed with lemon juice, honey, soya sauce and sesame oil is the best salad dressing ever. Just pour this over your noodles (we used spaghetti for this recipe) and toss them with some veggies of your choice (we used purple cabbage, bell peppers and carrots) and enjoy this salad 🙂 For this recipe, we used the unsweetened creamy peanut butter by Happy Jars
This creamy peanut butter went very will with with the remaining ingredients of the salad, resulting in a super smooth salad dressing. It is one hundred percent natural peanut butter that gave us a very rich dressing, also the fresh nutty flavour.
