Thai Zucchini and Carrot Noodle Salad

Even though I love every kind of meat (beef, pork, chicken, fish) sometimes it's great to take a break from them. The first problem I typically encounter with vegetarian food is the lack of heartiness, I just never feel full. This Thai Zucchini and Carrot Noodle Salad somehow still feels filling even though it's all vegetables. My guess is that the Thai Peanut Sauce + ground peanuts you put on these vegetable noodles beefs up the dish (no pun intended) and makes it feel much more substantial. You are going to love it!
