Spicy Rice Noodle Salad | 15-Minute Salad Recipe

Another really easy and quick salad recipe! Me and my fiancé recently spent nearly a month in Thailand and fell in love with their food ?. I would definitely label this one as a Thai inspired recipe (so it could be a bit too spicy, you might want to decrease chilly and pepper quantities! ?). This rice noodle salad takes only 15 minutes to prepare (including the preparation of the rice noodles ?).

  • 2 tbsp sesame oil
  • 2 cups purple cabbage, diced
