This salad will have your friends tantalized at how something this good won’t break the bank, is healthy and filling and quick to make. With summer on the way, this low fat and spicy noodle salad will give you the energy needed to deal with the day ahead. I usually prepare the noodles and sauce the night before and refrigerate in separately sealed containers. Once at work, I’ll combine the noodles and sauce.
