Dietary Modifications for Peanut Noodle Salad

  • For a nut-free version: If you are allergic to peanuts you can use cashews, or sunflower seeds for a tree-nut free version.  Just make sure you also use a sunbutter to replace the peanut butter too.
  • This recipe is gluten free: if you aren’t GF then you can use regular noodles or soy sauce instead of the GF alternative.
  • This recipe is vegan & vegetarian, but if you aren’t meatless you can add a cooked protein of your choice.
