Noodle Salad

Now this recipe was very interesting! I personally am not a big fan of capsicums, so i picked those out...But definitely yummy overall (and healthy too!) This recipe serves 8 - so half it if need be :)


Ingredients - 
  • 900g Hokkiens noodles
  • 6 spring onions, sliced diagonally
  • 1 large red capsicum, thinly sliced
  • 200g snow peas, sliced
  • 1 carrot, sliced diagonally
  • 60g fresh mint, chopped*
  • 60g fresh coriander, chopped*
  • 100g roasted cashew nuts
Sesame Dressing
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon peanut oil
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons kecap manis**
  • 3 tablespoons sweet chilli sauce
Method - 
  1. Gently separate the noodles and place in a large bowl, cover with boiling water and leave for 2 minutes. Rinse and drain.
  2. Put the noodles in a large bowl and add capsicum, spring onions, snow peas, carrot, mint and coriander. Toss together well.
  3. To make dressing, whisk together the oils, lime juice, kecap manis and sweet chillie sauce.
  4. Pour dressing over the salad and toss again.
  5. Sprinkle the cashew nuts over the top and serve immediately.
* I used herbs from the jar as i never use the whole bunch of fresh herbs and do not want to waste them.
** This can be found in the sauce isle, near the marinades and soy sauce. If you cannot find it, you can use soy sauce sweetened with a little brown sugar.
