A beautiful fresh salad that can be enjoyed all year round. This spicy Asian prawn salad with glass noodles is so light. Drizzled in a hot, yet sweet Vietnamese dressing, it will get your mouth watering and wanting for more. It’s packed with goodness, has great textures and is so flavoursome!
For those who don’t love seafood, you can always switch up the protein in the salad. I often use grilled chicken as a substitute for prawns if I’m not in the mood for seafood. For those who are vegetarian, you could add extra vegetables such as carrots, or tofu could work too.
We’ve used a Vietnamese fish sauce recipe (Nước Chấm) for the dressing. But the fish sauce dressing isn’t for everyone. If you’re serving this at lunch or dinner, it’s a good idea to keep the dressing on the side and offer an alternative dressing too, such as an Asian sesame dressing which is soy sauce based. You could even buy a store-bought dressing that comes in a jar. To be honest, that’s what I normally do.
Finally, if you have a household like mine, there’s always someone who doesn’t like one or more of the ingredients. That’s why I usually don’t mix the salad together, Rather, I lay out all of the finished components separately and everyone can pick and choose what they want to include in their salad.
