This salad is really simple and does not take a lot of time. Plus it is very light and ideal for a snack, diet or whatever is going on in your life. If you would like to skip the noodles, I already have a very light Asian salad if you click here.
You can also make it gluten free by using gluten-free soy sauce.
For 3-4 portions you need:
- 100g rice noodles
- 3 carrots
- 250g cucumber
- 3 spring onions
- 1tbs ginger
- 1 lime

Peel carrots and cucumber and cut in thin slices. Wash the spring onions and cut into rings then cut and grate ginger.
For the dressing mix the juice and the peel of the lime with soy sauce, peanut oil, ginger, chili powder, and onions.
Cook the rice noodles according to the instructions. Finally, mix the hot noodles with the veggies and the dressing. Taste with salt and pepper.
