Thai Glass Noodle Salad


I am so not looking forward to summer.. phbbbbt We were under Perth HOT spells for 3 consecutive days and it is only SPRING... This HOT weather is really wearing me down, zapping my energy and my head will make a 360° spin...

I prepared this Thai Glass Noodle Salad for our Friday BBQ (before the weather turned us to human jerky ...). Thai Glass Noodle Salad is easy on the stomach, it is refreshing with freshly chopped herbs and crunchy vegetables... 
I am whipping up this salad again this Saturday... Yes, we are having BBQ again... I am chuffed... My friends, whom I have not heard any news or met since I left my Primary school ... 33 years ago, are coming over to my place... I am looking forward to catch up with both of them....  big grin

Recipe:

1/2 chicken breast - cooked and shredded
2 cups of glass noodle -
1/4 cup fresh mints - chopped
1/4 cup of coriander leaves - chopped

1/2 red onion -thinly sliced
1/2 cup of peanuts - chopped coarsely

  3. Great salad for summer. Unfortunately, Sydney has been wet and cold. Looks to stay that way for a while.

  4. Kak Yati,
    I prefer cold weather than HOT.. at least in winter we can pile up on the sweater, jacket to keep warm... while in summer if i can peel off my skin I would :)
