Trader Joe's is making prepackaged salads a little more interesting with its new Peanut Udon Noodle Salad.
Udon noodles are wheat-flour noodles from Japan that are often found in soup. Now Trader Joe's is putting a spin on the hearty noodles by combining them with fresh veggies. Each Peanut Udon Noodle Salad starts with chewy udon noodles, paired with crunchy green and red cabbage, fresh red peppers, and dry roasted peanuts. To amp up the flavor, Trader Joe's also adds diced green onion and cilantro. Finally, all the flavors are tied together with a creamy peanut-ginger dressing made from ginger purée, lemon grass, garlic, lime juice, basil, ground Thai lime leaf, and other flavorful spices and seasonings.
