Allergy Free Thai Noodle Salad with Chicken


Allergy Free Thai Noodle Salad with Chicken

(Gluten-Free, Allergen-Free)

Yield: 4 servings

Thai food is usually loaded with common allergens, from the fish sauce (full of fish and shellfish), to soy sauce, to the chopped peanuts that provide the finishing touches.  Unwilling to give up this flavorful fresh cuisine, I came up with an allergen-free summer noodle salad, great for picnics, or dinner on a hot steamy night, that will satisfy your Thai food craving!

It keeps well in the fridge, so make up a batch of this light and herbacious dish on a Sunday, pack it in tupperware, and you’ve got lunches for a few days too.

Yield: 4 servings

  • 3 oz. rice noodles
  • 1 cup shredded cabbage
  • 1/2 cup shredded carrots
  • 1/4 English cucumber, quartered and sliced lengthwise
  • 1/2 red or yellow bell pepper, cut into thin strips
  • 1 1/2 cups cubed chicken breast (steam 1/2 lb. chicken breast for 15 minutes, cool and cube)
  • 2 Tbsp. + 2 tsp. chopped scallions
  • 2 Tbsp. + 2 tsp. chopped basil (Thai basil if you can find it)
  • 2 Tbsp. + 2 tsp. chopped mint
  • 2 Tbsp. + 2 tsp. freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 2 Tbsp. rice vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp. light agave nectar
  • 1 1/2 tsp. mirin (optional)
  • 1 tsp. Asian chili paste
  • 1 Tbsp. canola oil


  1. Boil noodles according to instructions on package. Place cabbage in a colander and drain noodles over cabbage. Rinse with cold water. Drain.
  2. Toss cabbage and noodles in a large bowl with carrots, cucumber, bell pepper, chicken, scallions, basil, and mint.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine lime juice, rice vinegar, agave nectar, mirin, chili paste, and canola oil. Whisk. Pour over noodles and toss. Serve room temperature or chilled.
