Super Green Miso Peanut Noodle Salad

Serves 6.


    Miso Peanut Noodle Salad

    Asian-inspired noodles with a hint of Sriracha spice up this unexpected, very green summer salad. Peanut butter and miso infuse the Master Vinaigrette with a decadent, dairy-free creaminess, while fresh chopped mint and cucumber keep things refreshing.


    Make a handheld romaine lettuce “taco” with this salad instead of eating it with a fork or chopsticks.
