Asian Rice Noodle Salad with Sweet Chile Dressing

Serves four.

  • ½ lb. rice noodles, soak in warm water 20 minutes, drain
  • ½ cup carrots, sliced thinly
  • ½ cup snow peas
  • ½ cup broccoli florets
  • 1 tbsp. canola oil
  • ½ cup celery, sliced thinly
  • 1 cup Asian cabbage, sliced thinly
  • ¼ cup fresh herbs, any mix of mint, cilantro and basil
  • ½ cup sweet chili sauce
  • ½ cup scallions, chopped
  • ¼ cup peanuts

Bring a pot of water to a boil and separately cook the carrots, snow peas and broccoli florets for about 30 seconds and cool in ice water to keep vegetables crunchy. Drain and reserve.

Heat a saute pan on high heat, add the vegetable oil and quickly stir fry the celery and cabbage for about one minute. Spread it out onto a cookie sheet to cool.

In a large bowl, combine noodles with all the vegetables and herbs and toss with the sweet chili sauce. Garnish with the scallions and peanuts.
