Chinese Noodle Salad with Peanuts

Hello everyone and happy Friday!

Today I will share with you the secret of how to make a great Chinese Noodle Salad with peanuts and lots of other exciting things.

It’s worth making a big portion because you can keep it for a few days in the fridge and you can easily take it to work with you.

All you need for ca. 5-6 portions:

For the salad:

  • Ca. 375-400g Chinese Noodles (you can use the ready-prepared ones)
  • 1 red, 1 yellow pepper
  • 2-3 spring onions, finely sliced
  • 1 package mangetout
  • 2-4 hand full of salted peanuts, roughly chopped
  • 1 garlic glove, finely chopped
  • 1 hand full fresh coriander, chopped

 For the dressing:

  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 3-4 tablespoons sweet chilli sauce
  • 3 tablespoons lime juice

 If you think the dressing is not enough, you can just add 1 tablespoon each accordingly.

Mix together all the dressing ingredients in a small bowl. If you are not happy with it add more lime or sweet chilli sauce. Put mangetout, pepper, spring onions, garlic and noodles in a big bowl. Pour the dressing over and mix well. Sprinkle with peanuts and coriander.

I made this salad the other day and Mr T and me we had nice dinner and lovely lunch boxes for the next day. The great thing is since it is a salad you don’t even have to queue for the microwave at work!

Have a nice weekend!
