Holy cow! I loved PW’s favorite ever Asian Noodle Salad, but I’m afraid I twisted it a bit. The noodles are infused with a lovely coconut curry sauce and tossed in a light vinaigrette and loaded with tons of fresh veggies. It is a take on Phad Thai and all the Thai curry dishes. If you love the flavors of Thailand, you will love this fresh salad. It is huge, so have a few friends to share with!
If you have never tried farro before, this salad is a great way to begin. The nutty, chewy texture of farro grains lends itself well to salads, and it can be mixed with many other ingredients to create a multitude of flavor options.
Quinoa (pronounced ‘keen-wah’), is very high in manganese, and also has relatively high levels of magnesium, iron, copper and phosphorous. Most importantly however, is that it contains a complete set of the amino acids that your body requires to build proteins. When cooked, it has a fluffy texture with a slightly nutty flavour which is useful in both savoury and sweet dishes and works brilliantly in this really simple salad.
