Spicy Beef or Chicken Asian Noodle Salad

Total Time

You can use linguine noodles in place of vermicelli or any Asian noodles, use cooked turkey in this recipe in place of the beef or chicken. You can really add in whatever veggies you like, I make this using small broccoli florets. If you like lots of dressing then double all ingredients. This is a yummy salad, and keeps well in the fridge, so it makes a great lunch to take to work!

I thought this was good, but it turned out a little too spicy for us. 2 T of chile-garlic sauce is a LOT. I also think I should have thinned the sauce more, because I don't think it distributed evenly. I used some leftover steak (some of it with Smokey Steak Rub which might have added to the heat) and also leftover Garlic and Oregano Stove Top Chicken because I didn't have as much beef left as I thought.
