It’s been a long time since I’ve been excited about noodles, but nonetheless, this recipe absolutely did the trick. Enter the Summer Pad Thai Noodle Salad.
As a bonus, it’s even low-FODMAP for all my SIBO friends. Admittedly, I was not trying to make it low-FODMAP, but it sort of just ended up that way.
“Noodles…..how are those low-FODMAP?” The answer is simple. Because I used Lotus Foods Organic Traditional Pad Thai Noodles. The only ingredient they contain is Organic white rice flour.
The salad dressing uses 1 tablespoon of honey, but if you are super sensitive to FODMAPs currently, you can swap this for Maple Syrup or if you want the entire dish to remain sugar-free, just skip it.
This Summer Pad Thai Noodle Salad can be eaten warm or cold. I have had it both ways and probably prefer it more as a cold salad, which is obviously good news because you can make it, then store in the fridge for leftovers on the fly.
It also makes a great dish to take along to summer get-togethers, picnics, and BBQs.
Last night Elisabeth had dinner with us. I made the salad but swapped in the Forbidden Rice® Pad Thai Noodles, and she absolutely loved it! She is Vegetarian, so we paired the salad with grilled kabobs – some with meat and shrimp, and the others just veggies and pineapple. Dinner rocked!
Alright, are you ready?!
