Method

  1. Cook the noodles following pack instructions, then rinse under cold water and drain thoroughly. In a small saucepan melt together the peanut butter, coconut milk, sweet chilli sauce and half the spring onions, adding 1-2 tbsp of water to loosen the mixture to a drizzling consistency.
  2. Mix the noodles, cucumber and beansprouts in a serving dish. Top with the prawns, drizzle over the peanut sauce and scatter over the remaining spring onions.

I always seem to struggle with noodles in salads (they have a tendancy to turn into soggy knitting on me!), however, I worked super quick to put this together & added carrot ribbons. My flatmate enjoyed it more than I did, but I think if you have the knack with noodles then it is worth a shot as the dressing is very good.

Very tasty, although I tweaked the recipe a little by upping the quantity of noodles to make it a little more substantial. I made cucumber ribbons with a peeler which looked nice:)

I have to say mine didn't look as neat and elegant as the photo (then again I did just throw it all in one bowl and toss it together!) but it was delicious all the same! The sauce is gorgeous and I think I'll try using it in a stir fry as well. I made my salad with prawns but can imagine it is just as nice with chicken. I will definitely make this again.

this is delicious! So tasty, with lots of interesting textures - made it with left-over roast chicken & it was on the table in a flash - has instantly become a family favourite.
