Thai Ramen Noodle Salad - need I say more??? This is a salad that we have been making or ordering in restaurants for years and years. and there are 2 big reasons why we continue to eat this delicious salad over and over - it’s healthy-ish, and it’s so delicious!

What I especially love about this salad is that it has both cabbage and romaine, it’s so flavourful with the cilantro, mint and chilli flakes, and it’s filling with the addition of ramen. Plus did you know you can get gluten-free, keto or brown rice ramen so you can eat this dish on almost any diet?

The addition of chicken to this dish would also be super yummy, and if you wanted to make it extra easy on yourself pick up a rotisserie chicken and dinner can be ready in less than 30 minutes.

Are you guys like me and want the option to have a delicious dinner on the table in less than 30? As much as I love to cook there are times when I just need something quick and easy and this is a perfect option for one of those nights!
