This one-pot recipe makes an exotically flavored Vietnamese noodle salad come to life in under 30 minutes. Ready for a workday lunch or a light weeknight dinner, the cool noodle bowl is great for eating outside in warmer months. The cellophane noodles are super filling and pair well against the lighter shrimp and broccoli. Purchase pre-cooked shrimp and steam-in-the-bag broccoli to make prep work fast and easy. If you aren't a cilantro fan, use some thinly sliced green onions for the additional texture, color and flavor.
