This is a winner. I don't bother with the cashews (unnecessary calories and doesn't really add anything special). But I do add fresh coriander and mint. Delicious and healthy.

This is a wonderfully tasty meal. Ideal for a lunch box option too. I emitted the Spinach, Cashews and Lime, all for preference, except for the spinach, that was more I didn't have any to hand. If you don't like prawns you could switch it up for chicken.

Really good meal and super delicious. Perfect for lunches and those hot summer evenings. I'm personally not a big fan of lime but using lemon works just as well. Definitely a permanent meal option for me!

Quick and easy to make. Great for a packed lunch. I thought one whole chilli might make this too hot but it was just right. Would make this again.

So delicious. I used quinoa spaghetti instead of noodles (sounds strange but tastes good) and added shallot instead of spring onion as I didn't have any. It made a great light dinner and I'll be having the leftovers for lunch tomorrow. Best of all it's on the table in under 10 minutes.

Easy and so tasty. Added sweet thai basil and coriander to the salad leaves. I didn't add dressing and prawns to the bowl of salad but put on the individual plates. This meant that the bowl of noodles and veg stored well in the fridge for lunch the next day.

I used some fish sauce in the marinade. Excellent and really really quick. Great for the next day at work and takes minutes to make literally.

A.M.A.Z.I.N.G..... What a gorgeous flavoursome simple dish.... Zesty, sweet, fresh.... Also for king prawns, get frozen taste the difference from Sainsburys; take 40 minutes to defrost and usually £5 but tend to be £2.50 or buy one get one free!

Hi all, is this suitable for making the night before, and storing in the fridge for the next day?
