This hearty and thirst-quenching Asian Keto Noodle Salad is seasoned with a Pad Thai style peanut sauce that tastes great on just about anything! Do it as is for a vegetarian keto – or add grilled chicken or shrimp to take it to the next level!  This keto salad recipe can easily be made vegan by substituting fish sauce and is already egg and dairy free!

If you are a fan of Pad Thai cuisine, you will love this Asian keto noodle salad with peanut sauce!  It’s filled with spicy ginger, cilantro (optional if you’re a hater), rich creamy peanut butter, and lots of colorful, crunchy kale and chopped peanuts.

Shiritak noodles enjoy all that delicious sauce, giving you that chewy noodle texture you might miss on a low-carb diet.  Some people are put off by the taste of carb-free pasta, but the reality is that you just have to rinse and drain it well before using it – then when you add it to such a bold tasting sauce, you can’t even tell it’s not the real thing!

Because this Asian noodle salad is egg-free and meatless, it’s perfect for serving at barbecues or picnics where it can be a challenge to keep salads at a safe temperature.  It also tastes just as good, if not better, a day or two after it’s made, so you can prepare in advance for picking, or just like preparing meals for easy keto dinners throughout the week.

As mentioned, although this Keto Asian Noodle Salad is vegetarian in preparation, you can easily add cooked chicken or shrimp for a heartier meal.

Since this Asian noodle salad doesn’t require cooking, it won’t heat up your kitchen during the hot summer months, plus it’s super easy to prepare in no time!

Since shiriteak noodles keep for a long time in the fridge, always keep a few bags on hand so you can enjoy this delicious Thai-inspired salad whenever you feel like it! And once you’ve tried it, I have a feeling you, like me, will want that delicious Asian keto noodle salad again and again! ?

Asian Keto Noodle Salad with Peanut Sauce Note

Carb-free spiritak noodles can be found in the dairy or vegetable aisles of most grocery stores, but if you can’t find them, you can order them from Amazon and other retailers.  If you can’t get them, you can replace them with shredded cabbage, zucchini spiral noodles (zoodles) or daikon radishes.

If you are allergic to peanuts, you can just use almond butter for the dressing and almond flakes for the garnish.

If you are allergic to nuts, sunflower oil and sunflower seeds would also be acceptable substitutes!

For strict vegetarians or vegans, replace fish sauce with soy sauce or coconut aminos and you’re good to go.
