To end this month , I wanted to make a wholesome salad, something which could also be a meal by itself. Something that has all the flavours I like… :)
And that is the how this awesome salad was born, yet again inspired by the recipe listed on this article!
The dressing is a simple mix of all things tasty - Sriracha sauce, lemon juice, rice wine vinegar and sesame oil!
Serve this salad hot or cold, but ensure that it is tossed when the noodles are warm. Adding the beans gives a protein quotient to this beauty, and be free to use any beans that you have at hand!
