Sometimes salads can get boring. They are one of the easiest lunches that you can prepare ahead of time, so why not spice it up? Using my favorite salad shortcut (organicgirl greens!), here’s a simple Asian noodle salad that you rivals your favorite restaurant.
This Asian noodle salad has a secret weapon: pre-washed butter lettuce. I prefer the new organicgirl true hearts butter lettuce that have been washed three times. It makes it simple to whip up a salad with flavor for work, weekend lunches, or just as a simple dinner option.
To make this salad, we used ahi tuna. My husband is the mastermind behind this recipe since he likes his ahi tuna rare. To get started on this dish, boil Asian noodles until tender. Cool them in the refrigerator until cool. Sear tuna steaks to desired temperature and slice.
The Asian flavor comes from oil, vinegar, soy, sriracha, and lime juice for a dressing. Over a bed of organicgirl butter lettuce, add the noodles, tuna, and dressing.
