Red Curry Udon Noodle Salad
This Red Curry Udon Noodle Salad is made with a spicy tahini red curry sauce, crunchy veggies and cold udon noodles.
A couple weeks ago I made this red curry tahini peanut sauce on a whim and I knew it needed to be brought to life in a new recipe. It is similar to my Spicy Peanut Sauce but has a little bit of a kick from the curry paste and tahini. Anyways, I’m totally obsessed with it and plan to put it on MANY things. Kicking it off with one of my favorites though…a cold noodle salad.
How to make Red Curry Udon Noodle Salad
This salad comes together in less than 30 minutes! It is superrrrrrr simple. Start off by making the sauce – add everything to a food processor or blender and mix it up!
Next boil the noodles. I decided to use udon (because I absolutely love them) but you could use soba noodles, rice noodles or even spaghetti!
While the noodles are boiling, dice the veggies. And that’s it folks…we are ready to assemble!
How to serve Red Curry Udon Noodle Salad
When I said this salad was easy, I meant it. Add all of your prepped ingredients to a bowl. Drizzle the sauce over it and toss until everything is nice and coated. Serve a couple lime wedges on the side and you are ready to dig in!
This salad makes great leftovers! If you use a hearty green (like kale) you can pre-mix everything and it will hold up for a few days. BUT, if you use something like spinach, then I would keep the sauce on the side for leftovers to keep it from wilting.
I like to dish this up in individual glass containers and have them on hand for a quick lunch!

This is amazing! I madè it when we had company in town and it was a hit. I used arugula for the greens and cut the noodles in half. I could have this every week! Super tasty, great spice and good for a summer picnic.
