Korean Style Cold Tofu Shirataki Noodle Salad with Shrimp

A tofu shirataki noodle salad with a rainbow of vegetables and shrimps in a delicious Korean dressing served cold; perfect for a hot summer day! It has certainly been hot the last few days, so I thought it would be a good idea to make a meal that doesn’t need to be cooked and can be served cold, this cold Korean style tofu shirataki noodle salad with shrimp.
 For the salad vegetables, I like to go with a rainbow of colors for a good presentation and include green lettuce and cucumber, yellow pepper, orange carrot, red kimchi, and purple cabbage. To turn this salad into a meal you need some meat and the pre-cooked shrimps fit perfectly because you don’t have to cook them and they are already chilled! The last part of the salad is a simple and tasty dressing with Gochugaro (Korean pepper flakes) for a little warmth. If you’re looking for a way to keep you cool on a hot summer day, you can’t go wrong with this cold Korean-style tofu shirataki noodle salad with shrimp!
