Vegan Thai Noodle Salad with Kelp Noodles
Learn all about Kelp Noodles and this majorly easy Thai dish in this video. I freakin’ love to eat kelp noodles, first off there is no cooking involved and they go with just about anything. The best thing about this dish is it only takes 10 minutes from start to finish! I like all the fresh flavors of mint and cilantro. This is another great dish to bring to dinner parties or a gathering. I know I tell you guys that all the time, but that is usually when I come up with these recipes. I wasn’t sure the first time I brought this to a dinner party if this would go over, because kelp noodles are a little out-of-the-box, but everyone ate this up! Sometimes I serve this on a platter inside of a bowl depending on what look I’m going for.
Kelp noodles come raw in the grocery store in a package, you usually find them hiding in the refrigerator section next to eggs, dairy free mayonnaise, tofu or something like that. Don’t discount them based on their looks because they are pretty special.
