Asian flavours – chicken noodle salad

Asian flavours – chicken noodle salad

Shredded cabbag, carrot, bean shoots, mint and coriander


I am always on the look out for great salad recipes, and this is a particularly good one. It made a HUGE bowl of salad that lasted me for days, and all those nutrients!! Also it is extremely tasty. . .

I used bbq’d chicken breast, but if you prefer to eat without meat, it could be made with no meat very easily – the salad itself is amazingly delicious! It doesn’t even need chicken, although it is a tasty accompaniment 🙂
