There are some foods that I crave when weather is getting warm. ‘Sushi’ is one of them, and ‘South East Asian flavoured Salad’ is another. This Rice Noodle Salad with Fish Sauce Dressing is perfect for the craving. Today I added Prawns, but Chicken is also good.


2 Servings


2 servings Rice Vermicelli
2 cupfuls Salad Vegetables *cut into thin strips
*Note: I used Cucumber, Carrot and Lettuce
1/8 Red Onion *thinly sliced
120g shelled Cooked Prawns *OR Cooked Chicken
Coriander *optional
Lime *optional

1 clove Garlic *grated OR finely chopped
2 tablespoons Lime Juice OR Lemon Juice
1 to 2 tablespoons Fish Sauce
1/2 to 1 tablespoon Sugar
Fresh Chilli OR Chilli Flakes as required

  1. Combine all the Dressing ingredients in a small bowl. Alter the amount of Fish Sauce and Sugar to suit your taste.
  2. Cook Rice Vermicelli in boiling water as instructed, rinse in cold water, then drain well. Cut OR tear if too long. *Note: Prawns (OR Chicken) can be cooked with Rice Vermicelli.
  3. Cut all Vegetables into thin strips, place into a large mixing bowl, add all other ingredients and the Dressing, and mix to combine. Add some Coriander Leaves on top and serve immediately.
