How great is Thai food?  The fresh garlic, ginger, chilli and lime juice… mmmmm…  the fresh, crunchy vegetables and fragrant herbs…

This Thai Noodle Salad is ready in a jiffy and tastes exactly like daydreams in the sunshine on a tropical island.  True story.

You can mix it up and use any vegetables you like – carrots, capsicum, red onion, baby corn.  Play it safe and serve the noodles neatly on the side or go wild and mix it all in together for delicious, messy fun.  Any way you like it, it’s fresh, tasty and packed with nutrition.

Now, where did I put my coconut?
