    Prep:30min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:40min 

    1. Mix garlic, soy sauce, vinegar, sugar, sesame oil, ginger and chilli flakes in a small bowl or measuring jug. Whisk in mayonnaise until smooth, then in a slow steady stream, whisk in oil; keep chilled.
    2. Prepare egg noodles according to packet instructions. Drain and allow to cool.
    3. Place broccoli in a microwave-safe bowl with a bit of water at the bottom. Cover with cling film and cook in the microwave on high for 3 to 5 minutes, until just tender (the amount of time will depend on your microwave, so check tenderness after 2 minutes). Drain the water from the bowl and set the broccoli aside to cool.
    4. Place all remaining salad ingredients in a large bowl. When cooled, add the noodles and broccoli. You can chill the salad at this point until you're ready to serve, or serve immediately. When ready to serve, add dressing and toss to coat.

    Delicious recipe- my son says it's one of his favourites. I used greek yoghurt instead of mayo and added lime juice to the dressing.  -  29 Sep 2014


    So delicious! I didn't add beansprouts because I don't like them but I'm keen to try this dressing with chicken. I think i'll prefer that. Still very good all round! Thanks for the recipe, jenn  -  29 Jun 2011


    This recipe was extremely easy, my family loved it although I thought it a little salty even though no salt was added, probably from the Soy sauce which I would use Soy with no salt next time. Very nice, would certainly cook this again. *See photo I put up  -  29 Dec 2011  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
