Low Carb Asian Slaw with Konjac Noodles

I lived in Asia for many years and really enjoyed eating many of their fresh Asian slaw like salads, which often featured rice noodles. Having been on the low carb band wagon for many years now, I haven’t eaten one of these types of salads for a long time but then….along came Konjac Noodles. They are made for this type of salad and are very similar in texture to rice noodles so I’m pretty excited about this particular recipe for Low Carb Asian Slaw with Konjac Noodles.

I was trying to come up with a lovely side dish to go with another recipe for Sugar Free Vietnamese Chicken Wings and this salad is the absolute perfect accompaniment. So, I’m really recommending that if you make one of these recipes, you make the other one to go with it.  You could also simply serve this as a salad or side dish or you could also add some shredded chicken to it to make it a more substantial meal.

I hope you manage to find the time to make this recipe for Low Carb Asian Slaw with Konjac Noodles – and would love to see some of your kitchen creations.
