Two Raw Sisters: Asian-inspired vegan noodles
Preparation time: 15 minutes Cooking time: 5 minutes. Refrigerator life: 3 days
We made this salad for our very first catering job. At the time, we were called “4ate7 Wholefoods” – for some reason we thought it was a good idea to make a pun out of our house number: 487. Aside from the brand name. terrible, this salad is always a solid favorite and a real crowd pleaser. It is best with grilled chicken. Leftovers will be welcome and will last up to three days.
