Warm Peanut & Passionfruit Glass Noodle Salad

Happy Weekend, everyone! g&b is serving you a beautiful Warm Peanut & Passionfruit Glass Noodle Salad today. You are definitely in for a treat if you make this. So. Much. Flavor! We’ve got passionfruit, we’ve got carrots and cucumbers, ginger and garlic and chili and peanuts and mint and a few other good, delicious and healthy ingredients that you are going to love. If all of that sounds complicated and time-consuming and altogether too much for a weekend, believe me, it is not. Swing your knife and whizz your food processor for about 5 minutes and you’ll be ready to go! A julienne peeler and/or a spiralizer really helps, good investments one and all. But you know that if I can get my lazy a** in gear, so can you! 😁

Hope you are all happy and healthy!
