What is Trader Joe’s Peanut and Crispy Noodle Salad Kit?
This is a DIY Thai inspired bagged salad kit that Trader Joe’s now has on its shelves.
In a great Thai dish, you’ll find sweet, sour, spicy, salty and of course umami flavors. These harmonious flavors combined in this bag create a truly delicious and unique salad.
So, what’s actually in the bag? Lets dig in and see…
Each bag has a hearty crunchy base of romaine lettuce, shredded carrots, cabbage, celery, chopped green onion and cilantro. Also included in the bag are Vermicelli noodles which are similar to rice noodles, chopped peanuts and a Thai zesty peanut & lime dressing.
Where In the Store?
You can find this Peanut and Crispy Noodle Salad Kit in the cold section with the other DIY salad kits, romaine hearts and baby arugula.

How to Serve Trader Joe’s Peanut and Crispy Noodle Salad Kit
One of my favorite parts about preparing these DIY salad kits is putting it all together. I really enjoy watching the salad come together to create something so delicious.
I served this Peanut and Crispy Noodle Salad Kit in a bowl, with a scoop of homemade chicken salad.
I used some of the peanut lime dressing that came with the kit, but I also used a little bit of Trader Joe’s Spicy Cashew Butter Dressing to give it a little something extra, and it was DELISH.
I picked both items up during my Trader Joe’s May Haul! Go check out what other fun things I picked up a few weeks ago by clicking on the link!
I love these salad kits because they’re so easy to throw together when you’re in a hurry. The fact that all of the ingredients are right there in the bag, ready for you to tear open and mix together is a big time saver.
This wasn’t my first time trying this salad kit, its probably my 10th to be quite honest. I can’t get enough of this salad.
As you can see from the picture below, I mixed the entire salad kit together, and then I portioned out 2 more servings for myself for the days to come! How great is that?
The flavor of this salad and zesty lime dressing are a match made in heaven. Out of this world delicious. The thing that keeps me coming back for this salad is the crunch.
The crunchy cabbage, shredded carrots and crispy romaine lettuce really give this an extra “oomph” that most salads don’t have. Isn’t it just the worst when a salad goes soggy on you? Well, not this one!!
Buy It Again?
I will 100%. be buying this Peanut and Crispy Noodle Salad Kit again.
I buy a bag or two for myself every time I go to Trader Joe’s which is about 1-2 times per month! I even got my parents hooked on this salad, so sometimes I end up bringing back 3 or 4 bags!! You get a salad kit and you get a salad kit….(thank you Oprah).
