150 Gr. Rice Noodles
150 Gr. Grilled chicken meat, cut in slices. You can also use prawns, poached fish or a small steak cut in fine slices. In this case, I used leftover Firecracker chicken meatballs.
2 Carrots shredded
2 Scallions finely sliced diagonally
5 Radishes finely sliced
1 Small head of Romain lettuce cut in bite size pieces
2 Celery branches cut finely in diagonal
1/2 Small cucumber cut in fine slices diagonally
1/4 Cup mint leaves cut finely
1/4 Cup Thai Basil cut finely
1/4 Cup Salted peanuts
First, prepare the noodles by boiling water and cover the noodles. After a minute, shake the noodles as they tend to stick together. Let the noodles rest for 3 minutes. Drain the water out and rinse the noodles under cold water. Keep in a colander and let them sit at room temperature, until you are ready to make your salad.
For the rest, simply cut the vegetables and place in a bowl, along with the noodles and meat.
