Portable Chicken Noodle Salads

This Five Spice Chicken Noodle Salad from Trader Joe's is Flavorful

— July 6, 2015 — Lifestyle
Available at Trader Joe's locations on the West Coast of the USA, the Trader Ming's Five Spice Chicken and Asian Style Noodle Salad is a crisp and refreshing grab and go meal with plenty of flavor. Designed to be refreshing at a similarly refreshing price point, the lean protein-packed salad is a healthier option than most pre-made meals that doesn't skimp on value.

The salad opts for cabbage and vermicelli-thin rice noodles as the base and is full of sliced red onions, cucumbers and julienne-cut carrots. The salad features strips of chicken breast and is based with a Chinese five spice flavor combination that is made up of star anise, clove, cinnamon, pepper and ground fennel seed.
