Lo Mein Salad























I truly enjoy this recipe.  It’s so easy to make and such a nice salad for lunch and dinner. I use Star Fine Foods Seasoned Rice Vinegar to give it that zesty balance of sweet and salty flavors that are so perfect for Asian recipes. Don’t go light on the lime, it gives it the touch and brings all the flavors together. The vinaigrette tastes just like the dressing PF Chang's used to have on their oriental chicken salad.


Ginger Vinaigrette

1 tablespoon finely grated fresh ginger
½ teaspoon sugar
2 teaspoons soy sauce
12  teaspoon oil, sesame
salt and freshly ground pepper

 In a small bowl, mix the rice vinegar with the sugar and grated ginger until the sugar is dissolved. Whisk in the olive oil and sesame oil and season with salt and pepper.  Set aside. 

























 Lo Mein Salad

1 package Lo Mein Noodles, Cooked And Drained 
1 bunch of asparagus trimmed and chopped
½ red onion, sliced thin
1 carrot, cut julienne or buy a package of matchstick carrots
Zest of one lime
2 tablespoons lime juice
1 tablespoon hot chili sauce or Sriracha Sauce

Blanch asparagus for 2 min in large pot of boiling, salted water. Transfer to bowl of ice water and let sit for a minute and then drain. Diagonally slice into 1-inch pieces. Add noodles to the same blanching water; blanch 1-2 min, drain and rinse with cold water.  




















In a large bowl, toss noodles, onion, carrots, lime zest and asparagus. Combine chili sauce and lime juice in a separate small bowl and mix well.  Pour over noodle mixture and toss.  Finally, add the vinaigrette and toss to combine.  Add salt and pepper to taste.  Serve immediately.
