Rice noodle salad

Going with the salad theme, today we made a lovely light noodle salad with a sesame oil dressing.  It is quite easy to make and didn't need much preparation. The dressing is very simple and the flavours are subtle but they really work!
I used prawns because.. well I love prawns but you could try it with tofu and add more vegetables if you like.  You can also use cooked rice noodles, which are easily available in most supermarkets and save more time! 

Serves 3-4

200 gms dried flat rice noodles

225 gms of cooked king prawns 
1 carrot, cut into strips
1 spring onion, chopped
1 red chilli, deseeded and chopped
Handful of toasted peanuts

For the dressing

3 tbsp lemon juice

2 tbsp vegetable oil
2 tbsp sesame oil
1 tsp dried parsley
1/4 tsp dried red chilli flakes


Cook the noodles as per instructions on the packet.

Combine all the dressing ingredients in a bowl. Check for seasoning and salt as required. Add the carrot, spring onion, chilli and prawns to the dressing and mix well. Add the noodles and toss everything together. Sprinkle on the peanuts and serve.

If you don't like the taste of raw spring onion, then stir fry it with the carrot and chilli for a couple of minutes and add it to the dressing :)
