Thanks to the creamy peanut dressing, this Thai-inspired salad is bursting with flavor. Udon noodles are more accurately thick wheat-based Japanese noodles typically eaten in broth, similar to ramen. Here, the noodles add heartiness and bulk, and the vegetables add the perfect touch of crispiness. Serve alongside a meat dish for a complete meal.
