Instructions
  1. Combine dressing ingredients in a jar and shake well to combine. Set aside for 5 minutes for the flavours to infuse.
  2. Prepare vermicelli noodles per packet directions (usually soak in warm or boiling water 2 minutes). Drain well then set aside for 10 minutes to drain off exces water. Turn out onto tea towel if necessary to dry more (watery noodles = watery flavour).
  3. Combine vermicelli noodles with remaining salad ingredients.
  4. Just prior to serving, toss through dressing. Garnish with Fried Asian Shallots if you wish.
Recipe Notes

1. Vermicelli noodles - very thin noodles made from rice. My favourite brand is Wei Wei (see photo in post). Any thin noodles can be used.

2. Dressing substitutes: Light soy sauce - sub with regular dark soy sauce, however, the colour of the dressing will be a darker colour and so the salad will look browner than in the photo. Rice wine vinegar - sub with lime juice for more of a Thai / Vietnamese spin. Can also sub with other mild vinegars like white wine vinegar, sherry vinegar, champagne vinegar, even apple cider vinegar. Chilli - is optional. 1 chilli provides a nice subtle hum, barely there. I also like to add slices of chilli for a bit more of a kick!

3. Customisation: Sub vegetables with any that can be thinly sliced in similar shapes (eg iceberg lettuce, snow peas, red onion, capsicum/bell peppers, cucumber) Add mint for a Thai / Vietnamese spin. Could also add Thai Basil leaves.
