Ingredients
FOR THE SALAD
  • 8 ounces rice noodles
  • 3 whole carrots peeled and grated on the largest holes of a box grater
  • 2 cups shredded red cabbage
  • 1 bunch scallions thinly sliced, green only
  • 1 cup bean sprouts drained and rinsed
  • 1 cup dry roasted peanuts roughly chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh cilantro roughly chopped
FOR THE DRESSING
  • 1/2 cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup sesame oil
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 dash worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger
  • 1 clove garlic grated
  • 1/2 teaspoon creamy peanut butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon Chinese five spice
Instructions
  1. First, prepare the rice noodles according to the package. They may need to be either gently boiled or soaked in hot water for just a few minutes. Drain them in a colander and rinse them well under cold water. Transfer them to a large salad bowl and toss them with the carrots, cabbage, scallions, bean sprouts, peanuts and cilantro. In another bowl whisk the soy sauce, two oils, Worcestershire sauce, grated ginger, grated garlic, peanut butter and Chinese five spice together thoroughly. Pour the dressing into the salad and toss it all together really well to coat everything. You can either serve immediately or cover it in the refrigerator until you want to eat it! It will keep for a couple of days.
