Thai Noodle Salad with Peanut Sauce

This Thai noodle salad is vegetables and noodles tossed in a crave-worthy peanut sauce. It's easy to make in only 20 minutes and can be served hot or cold.
Prep Time5 mins
Cook Time15 mins
Servings: 4


  • 8 ounces brown rice noodles (or pad thai, soba, fettuccine, or spaghetti noodles)
  • 2 large carrots peeled and thinly sliced (about 1 cup)
  • 1 red bell pepper thinly sliced
  • 1 cup thinly shredded red cabbage

Peanut Sauce

  • ¼ cup creamy peanut butter
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh ginger
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon Sriracha (optional, for spice)

Toppings (Optional)

  • Cilantro
  • Roasted peanuts


  • Make the sauce: in a small bowl, use a fork to stir together the ingredients for the sauce. Stir well, until the peanut butter is completely dissolved and the sauce is smooth (not grainy). Set aside.
  • Cook the noodles: cook the noodles according to their package instructions. Drain the noodles and use tongs or two forks to toss them with the sauce in a large bowl.
  • Add vegetables: add the chopped carrots, bell pepper, and cabbage to the noodles and toss again, until everything is coated in the sauce.
  • Serve: serve warm or refrigerate for 5 minutes if you prefer your noodle salad chilled. Optionally, top with chopped cilantro and roasted peanuts.
