A typical banh mi is a sandwich filled with Vietnamese seasoned meat and pickled vegetables, served on a baguette. This salad mimics those flavors, making it an addictive recipe that you’ll want to make over and over again!
Use this recipe as a template for one-bowl summer lunch salads with the same dressing and bread, but varying salad ingredients; try adding leftover veggies, like roasted corn kernels.For vegetarian protein alternatives, replace tuna with cooked beans or diced, fresh mozzarella cheese.
This raw tangle of vegetables, noodles, and a barely-there dressing is my upgrade on a fresh spring roll but in salad format. The whole mess is quite refreshing and zingy but as comforting as the inside of a fresh spring roll.
