I just love these salads.  Filled with thin rice noodles, edamame beans, shrimp, cilantro and lime, all tossed in a creamy peanut sauce. They are big, filling, loaded with protein, you can eat them for lunch or dinner, or even pack them to go since the rice noodles will never get mushy or soggy.

Cook the noodles according to the package directions. Drain and set aside to cool. If frozen, boil edamame beans until tender crisp, set aside to cool. Whisk together all dressing ingredients until smooth (or use blender). Divide the noodles into 4 bowls and top with carrot, edamame, shrimp, and cilantro. Drizzle with dressing and lightly toss to coat.

  1. Thank you for such simple recipes. I’m new at eating gluten, dairy and egg free and get discouraged on reading all the things I CAN’T eat. These recipes are such a big help. Am going to the store to get what I need to make this. Thanks again.

  2. It is definitely a big adjustment to transition to a gluten free lifestyle, so hang in there! Just remember that gluten free eating (at home) doesn’t haven’t to be limiting and tasteless, that’s where we come in! Eating out in restaurants will be your next challenge…my advice would be to check the restaurants websites in your area to see if they have gluten free menus. That way you can be prepared before you even get there, and be at ease to know that the food you order should be safe.

  3. The dressing calls for 1/2 c GF creamy peanut. Peanut what? Is it peanut butter? peanut sauce? or something else? Thanks for clarifying.
