Servings: 5 people
Prep time: 25 minutes
2 1/2 tbsp sweet chilli sauce
2 1/2 tbsp vegetable oil
2 tbsp fresh lime juice
1 1/2 tbsp soy sauce
2 tsp maple syrup
1 tsp sesame oil
1 1/2 medium avocados, deseeded & cubed
2 spring onions, chopped
4 tbsp roasted peanuts, chopped
4 tbsp fresh coriander, chopped
1 chilli, deseeded & chopped
Follow the packet’s instructions to cook the noodles. Once cooked, strain and rinse under cold water. Set aside for the time being.
While the noodles are cooking, prepare the pomelo. Start by removing the pointy end, then score the thick skin a few times all the way around the fruit. Peel it, separate the segments and remove the membranes. We only need the pulp for this recipe, so crumble it and set it aside for the time being.
Next, make the dressing. Put the sweet chilli sauce, vegetable oil, lime juice, soy sauce, maple syrup and sesame oil into a bowl. Stir well until smooth.
Finally, assemble the salad. Start by dishing up the noodles and crumbling the pomelo pulp on top. Scatter with avocado, spring onion, peanuts, coriander and chilli, then drizzle over the dressing. Serve and enjoy!
To store: We recommend eating this salad straight away, but leftovers can be kept in an airtight container in the fridge for one day.
