Mai Fun Veggie Salad

Mai Fun Veggie SaladWe were invited to a pig roast over the weekend, and the hostess requested I bring “one of your veggie creations.” I added some bok choy to our box this week, and was thinking a bok choy salad. I found this recipe onĀ yummly for Oriental Cold Noodle Salad, and thought I could modify it with more vegetables. Unfortunately, our grocery store is in the process of “resetting,” and they didn’t have soyba noodles. I found some Mai Fun and decided to try that instead. I came home from the pot luck with an empty bowl, so I think this was a successful recipe.
