Thai Glass Noodle Salad (variation)

Thai Glass Noodle Salad (variation)

  • mung bean thread noodle – x200 grams
  • carrot – x2 medium-sized
  • cucumber – x1 medium-sized
  • paprika – x1 medium-sized
  • tomato – x1 medium-sized
  • coriander – x1 cup
  • galangal or ginger – x1 thumb-sized piece
  • lemon grass – x2 stalks
  • lime leaves – x5 leaves
  • red chilli – x1 small-sized
  • lemon juice – x1 full lemon squeezed
  • white balsamic vinegar – x5 tbsp
  • vegetable oil of your choice (optional) – x1 tbsp
  • salt to taste 

Step 1. Soak noodles in hot water for 10 minutes  or until it becomes soft, but not too mashy. Cool it down (you can rinse noodles in cold water) and put into a bowl

Step 2. Chop carrots, cucumber, paprika, tomato and coriander, add to the bowl and mix with the noodles

Step 3. Make a paste from galangal, lemon grass, lime leaves and chilli by mixing them with a small quantity of water in a blender

Step 4. Add the freshly prepared paste together with lemon juice, vinegar, oil and salt to the bowl and mix your salad nicely. Let it sit in the bowl for 10-15 minutes, so that it “marinates” a little and obsorbs the taste of spices

Step 5. Generously sprinkle your salad with crushed peanuts on top – your salad is ready to be served.

Enjoy your spicy salad as a starter or as a main dish!

    Hmm it appears like your site ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to everything. Do you have any tips and hints for first-time blog writers? I’d certainly appreciate it.
