Simple Noodle Salad

This simple noodle salad from Elena Duggan is perfect for summer and so versatile - replace the grilled chicken with tofu or barbecued mushrooms for a vegetarian option, either way, Marty Boetz's soy mirin dressing elevates it to a whole new level


1 portion sweet potato noodles, cooked as per packet instructions, refreshed in ice water

1 medium carrot, shredded, julienned or use a peeler for strips

1 handful of snow peas, shredded

½ red onion, finely sliced

1 small cucumber, julienned

1tablespoon Uniquely Martin Boetz sweet soy mirin dressing to drizzle

1 piece grilled chicken thigh or firm tofu (Note: I marinated mine in turmeric and soy for a bit of colour and flavour)

Method and notes

You can either build layers on your serving plate or toss together first.

This is such a simple salad, you could absolutely add crushed nuts, fried onions, sliced chilli, pickled ginger or just about any other vegetable combination you can get your hands on – this combo works well because the dressing really shines, adding complexity to the otherwise simple pile of flavours and textures.
