Thai glass noodle salad

    22 min

    I bring my own lunch to work everyday, and since there is no microwave in my office I try to make foods that don't need heating. This recipe is very simple and tasty and my coworkers love it. I usually make it the night before and refrigerate it. You can increase or decrease the amount of ingredients according to your preference.

    I just use the cooked noodles which I leave to go cold and coat them in the dressing. Nice accompaniment with a salad.  -  18 Apr 2015
