The other day while I was cleaning out my pantry, I came across a pack of glass noodles that had been lying around for months and thought it would be a great idea to finally use them. Well apparently they require only a few seconds of cooking time. So here I am, in my kitchen, with a bowl of glass noodles on my counter top and trying to think what I should make with them. Well, that’s when I came up with this exquisite looking glass noodle salad.
After a brief look in my fridge, I knew I wanted the salad to be packed with green goodness! So, I chopped a generous handful of coriander, rocket leaves, and green onions. But what’s a dish without any garlic? So, I crushed some garlic, along with a satisfying amount of peanuts then added some freshly squeezed lemon juice, olive oil, sea salt and pepper, and before I knew it my lunch was ready!
So easy to make, looks exceptionally pleasing, and tastes insanely delicious!
