Thai Style Noodle Salad

The sun was blazing this whole week and so we decided to take advantage of the weather and kick back for a casual barbecue for two. The results were amazing! see the recipe below for the Thai style noodle salad we had along side our barbecued chicken and New York Steaks.

1/2 box of angel hair pasta
ham- cut into strips
matchstick carrots about 3/4 of a cup
2-3 chopped scallions
1/2 english cucumber peeled into strips
1 cup chopped cilantro
green beans-lightly blanched then shocked
Juice of 1 large lime
Juice of 1/2 lemon
3-4 tablespoons of Sesame oil
black sesame seeds and sprouts would also be great in the salad

1. in a pot of salted boiling water cook angel hair pasta until al dente
drain and allow the pasta to cool down completely before adding other ingredients

chop the scallions, ham, cilantro, and green beans then juice the lemon and lime

once the noodles are cool it is as simple adding the juices, sesame oil and salt to taste to the noodles and tossing until evenly coated. once the noodles are coated add the rest of the ingredients and give one more toss then garnish the top with a layer of cilantro, scallions, carrots, beans in a serving platter.
