A fun summer salad that’s got a sweet sesame flavour that covers the rice noodles & fresh veg!! I pre-cooked and cooled a half package of rice noddles and in a large bowl tossed it with shaved carrots, halved cherry tomatoes, diced cucumber and peas. Tossed in the sesame peanut dressing I topped it with chopped green onions & cashews! (Use peanuts or sesame seeds if you prefer)!
Sesame peanut dressing
1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
3 tbsp sesame oil
1 tbsp smooth peanut butter
1 tbsp soya sauce
1/2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tbsp honey mustard
1/2-1 tsp sambal garlic chilli paste
Salt & pepper to taste
Whenever I make dressings I don’t exactly measure it out but just use my taste and the rule that it should be about 2 parts oil to one part vinegar. I’m using about half & half because the noodles soak up liquid like crazy so it needs a bit more vinegar to really get the flavour!
Just throw the ingredients in a small jar, close the lid and shake! Adjust to taste and add more of any of the ingredients to taste!
Pour over the noodles, toss & enjoy!!
