asian-turkey-salad(Serves 4)

Ingredients:
300g rice noodles
3 carrots, washed and peeled into ribbons
1 small white cabbage, washed and finely shredded
400g cooked turkey breast, shredded
2 tbsp fresh coriander, washed and leaves picked

For the dressing:
2 shallots, finely diced
1 red chilli, washed, deseeded and finely diced
1.5 tbsp Thai fish sauce
1.5 tbsp light brown soft sugar
1 tbsp vegetable oil
3 limes

Method:
1. Put the rice noodles in a large bowl and cover with boiling water. Leave for 5-10 minutes until tender, then drain.
2. Make the dressing: in a small bowl whisk together the shallots, chilli, fish sauce, sugar, oil and the juice of 2 limes, then season with freshly ground black pepper.
3. Place the carrots, cabbage and turkey in a large bowl with half the coriander and the cooked noodles. Toss with some of the dressing and season with freshly ground black pepper. Divide among plates and scatter with the remaining coriander. Serve with the remaining lime, cut into wedges, and any leftover dressing.

Top tip: Cucumber ribbons, shredded mange tout and sliced mango also work well in this salad.
