Asian Rice-Noodle Salad with Cashews

Asian Rice-Noodle Salad

I’m finally back! It has been a really busy fall. My church bought a new building, and I learned a ton about building renovations. It was a lot of fun, educational, and an incredible amount of work! Dwayne and I ate out a lot. There simply wasn’t time to cook! But now I’m ready to get back to the kitchen and do some homemade vegetarian cooking!

This is an adaption of a recipe that was published in the Toronto Star by Jennifer Bain in December. The recipe was for Edamame-Carrot Rice Noodle Salad, but I didn’t have any edamame, sesame oil, sesame seeds or rice vinegar so I switched out many of the ingredients with what I had on hand. It still turned out to be very tasty. I hope you like it too. Feel free to switch out the ingredients with what you have on hand! 🙂

One thing I would recommend now that I’ve made it, is to break up the rice-noodles before cooking them since they are somewhat difficult to eat when they are left full length. Sprouts would also be an excellent addition.

Makes approx. 6 servings.

Here’s what you’ll need:
Approx. 4.4 oz or 125 g of rice noodles
1 cup julienned* snap peas
1 cup julienned carrots
1 cup julienned yellow pepper
1 1/2 cups of cashews
3 tbsp cider vinegar, red wine vinegar or rice vinegar
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp sesame or olive oil
* Julienned = cut into thin strips

Break the rice-noodles into smaller pieces and cook them in boiling water for about two minutes.

In a separate container whisk together vinegar, soy sauce and oil. Mix together with the noodle mixture.

Sprinkle with sesame seeds if you have them and serve with chopsticks!

    So you don’t sauteed the veggies at all right? I didn’t see where it called for it?

    • Hi Susan. Yes, that’s right. No need to cook anything but the rice noodles and it is served cold.
