Five Minute Noodle Salad with Cukes + Mint


This is my edible response to last week's heatwave 😜. Even though I could barely stand to let anything boil in 100 degree heat index, I made enough noodles for a few salads. It's a lifesaver to have the dressing, noodles and chopped veggies ready to go for meal prep.

Five Minute Noodle Salad with Cukes + Mint

  • 8 oz. of your favorite noodle (I love fresh Shanghai noodles)
  • 1/2 cucumber, thinly sliced
  • 2 oz. fresh mint, minced


  • 3 tsp. dark soy sauce
  • 3 tsp. chili garlic sauce
  • 1-2 tsp. honey
  • 1 tsp. sesame oil
  • Dash of rice wine vinegar
  • Dash of white pepper

Put all dressing ingredients in a jar and shake well; set aside. Boil your favorite noodles and drain with cool water. Add enough dressing until noodles are coated and toss with cucumbers and mint. Serve room temperature or cold.
