Crunchy Vegetable Noodle Salad

Veggie noodle salad lunch

I know you'll love this flavorful noodle salad brimming with veg.  It makes a perfect weekday pack along lunch for work, school, picnics or even travel.  You will make everyone jealous when you open up this for lunch.   

Busy Mom tip: Start the noodles in boiling water and at the end of the cook time, add the edamame and peas directly to the noodles (they will cook in just a minute or 2) and drain together.

Make sure to use a great quality extra virgin olive oil. We love Colavita!
