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 🍜).

Salad Ingredients

  • 125 g rice noodles
  • 2 tbsp sesame oil
  • 2 cups purple cabbage, diced
  • 1 carrot, shredded 
  • 1 cup edamame, shelled 
  • 1 cup cucumber, sliced 
  • 1 tsp sesame seeds for topping

  • 2 tbsp lime juice (or the juice from half a lime)
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • ½ tsp red chili flakes
  • ¼ tsp black pepper, ground
  • ½ tsp salt
  • Cook the rice noodles per package directions. Strain, add 2 tbsp sesame oil and leave noodles to cool for 5 min.
  • Prepare the dressing by adding 1 tbsp sesame oil, 2 tbsp lime juice (or the juice from half a lime), 1 tbsp soy sauce, 1 tbsp honey, ½ tsp red chili flakes, ¼ tsp black pepper, ground and ½ tsp salt in a small bowl. Whisk until well combined.
