A light, aromatic Asian salad with vermicelli rice noodles, vegetables and peanuts. Seasoned to taste with fresh herbs, soy sauce and fish sauce and served with crunchy peanuts. This salad can be served as an appetizer or as a main course. It is low in calories and quick to prepare. In the basic version of this salad you will not find meat, cheese or fish. However, in different versions, you can add tofu cheese, fried chicken meat, grilled salmon or fried beef. The version below is perfect for lunch or afternoon tea.

The choice of vegetables and herbs with which you can prepare an Asian salad is quite large. When it comes to herbs, I personally really like the combination of fresh mint and coriander. Other herbs such as basil will also work well here. In terms of vegetables, it is similar, you can opt for head cabbage, salad cucumber, peppers, red cabbage, carrot, radish. The choice is large, it all depends on what vegetables you like to eat in this type of salad. I do not add salt or pepper to this salad because soy sauce, fish sauce and salted peanuts are enough. I recommend the following recipe for an Asian salad with rice noodles and I wish you a tasty meal.

Good to know when making Asian rice noodle salad.

Vermicelli rice noodles work best in this salad. However, they can be replaced with any type of rice noodles.

Jalapeno pepper can be replaced with chili pepper.

I usually buy the peanuts I add to this salad already roasted. However, if you buy peanuts that are not roasted, roast them before adding them to the salad. Just put them in a pan and roast them on a very low heat for less than 10 minutes.
