Easy Sesame Shrimp Noodle Salad

Try this easy and delicious Sesame Shrimp Noodle Salad recipe its perfect for lunch or dinner, and you can make it the day ahead too. I like to keep it really colorful with tons of veggies, and Ive been known to throw in carrots, zucchini, cherry tomatoes, or whatever I have in the crisper drawer. Ive also been known to use parsley instead of cilantro because it needs the fresh herbs, but I like parsley waaaaay better. Dont be afraid to switch it up..
