Here we go with a new summer salad. It was my first time make it, but it was a success. So yummy and fresh.
As you might have noticed, I really love asian cuisine. I think it’s delicious, lots of flavors, and light.
I found this recipe on a food blog, but sadly I haven’t wrote down the address of it, sorry.
For this salad, you need:
– rice noodles (even better when they are thiner than the one I used)
– fresh onions
– soy sauce
– sesame oil
– lime juice
– fish sauce
The first thing to do is to let the noodle rest in a bowl of hot water.
While it cooks, slice the carrots, the pepper and the cucumber in very thin stripes.
Once the noodles are cooked, let them cool off in a bowl.
Make the dressing with the ginger, soy sauce, sesame oil, lime juice, fish sauce and sweet&sour sauce. The sweet&sour sauce wasn’t part of the original recipe, but I thought it made it better.
Mix everything together: the sliced vegetables, the noodles, the dressing and the shrimps. Add the cilantro and the mint and TA-DA!
