Chinese instant soup salad with chicken, pickled peppers, gherkins and sweetcorn is a delicious cold dish that works great at family celebrations. It can be served on name days, birthdays, communions and many other meetings with friends or family. Christmas is also a good opportunity to serve this salad. Although the name of the salad suggests a Chinese instant soup salad, you only use noodles from such a soup. As you know, in Chinese instant soups, there can be other additives depending on their flavour, such as dried vegetables.
I start the preparation of the Chinese soup salad by pouring boiling water over the noodles and frying the chicken meat. When the noodles and meat are ready, I cool them down and put them in a bowl, and add chopped cucumbers, corn and peppers. The seasoning is mayonnaise and chilli sauce. Thanks to the latter, the salad will be slightly spicy. I recommend you the following recipe for Chinese instant soup salad and I wish you a tasty meal.
