How Long Does Noodle Salad Last?

Asian noodle salad can be made a well in advance and enjoyed for lunches throughout the week. Toss with sesame ginger dressing before storing it to allow all of the flavors to blend.

If you adding in freshly cooked chicken breasts, you can store leftovers in the fridge for about three days in a tightly covered container. However, this dish contains so many raw vegetables, it is not a good candidate for the freezer.

What to Serve it With?

If adding grilled chicken, this is a perfectly balanced one-pot meal. Starch, veg, and meat all in one bowl means no need to fuss with side dishes! It’s a great side for Teriyaki Grilled Chicken Thighs too!

Dress up the meal by serving it Asian restaurant-style, with crunchy fried noodles and bowls of hot and sweet dipping sauces. An icy cold pitcher of strawberry lemonade will complete the meal.
