Ree Drummond whips up a colorful summer noodle salad

Drummond showed how to make his Asian noodle salad on an episode of The pioneer woman. “It’s summer and, to me, that means color, color, color,” she explained. She said the noodle salad is one of her “all-time summer favorites.”

The Food Network host explained: “As soon as the warm weather comes, it’s definitely over with the cold and with the new summer recipes. Anyone who knows anything about me knows that I love color, especially with my food.

She continued, “I’m going to make an Asian noodle salad. It’s so tasty, so easy to make, and it’s bursting with nearly every color under the rainbow.

Drummond warned “there is a lot of preparation” involved, but assured that “nothing is complicated at all”.

How to make Ree Drummond’s Asian Noodle Salad Recipe

The pioneer woman star added prepared vegetables in a bowl: red cabbage, cucumbers, kale, sweet peppers, Napa cabbage, shredded carrots, bean sprouts and green onions.

“Really, you can use any veggie you want for this salad. Just about anything goes,” she said. “There’s so much flavor in this salad. I love it.

Drummond added cooked thin spaghetti, explaining, “You can use linguine, you can use rice noodles – pretty much any noodle you have in your pantry.”

She mixed the ingredients together. Next, Drummond explained where she got the inspiration for the colorful salad from. “I first saw a salad like this on TV years ago,” she said. “I thought it was so pretty and I’ve been recreating it ever since. It’s turned into a totally different salad over the years, but the thing is, you have noodles, colorful veggies, and it always turns out beautiful.

‘The Pioneer Woman’ star whips up an easy salad dressing

For the dressing, combine Drummond olive oil, low sodium soy sauce, oyster sauce, rice wine vinegar, toasted sesame oil, minced ginger, minced garlic and brown sugar in a mason jar.

“It really makes for a great lunch with friends,” she said. “One thing I like to do is assign a different ingredient to each friend. Someone brings cabbage, someone brings carrots…everyone comes up, throws it in a bowl. I’ve got the dressing ready , then we mix it up and enjoy it.

Drummond poured the dressing over the salad and tossed it. “Basically, you want to have as many vegetables as noodles,” she said. “You don’t want to have too much of a single ingredient.”

Drummond added chopped fresh cilantro and chopped peanuts and mixed everything together again. “This salad could win every beauty contest it enters,” the Food Network host said. “If you love color, this is definitely the salad for you.”
