As you know, I have been taking intensive german course for the last 3 weeks and I try to bring my own lunch box that is easy and no need to warm up, because there is no microwave at the place where I study. This is the perfect healthy lunch, can be served cold, and easy to make. The key to this salad is the sauce, so I actually prepared for about 4 servings the salad and 2 servings for the sauce, so that I can make fresh sauce the next day when I am ready to eat. So feel free to adjust.. 🙂 Enjoy and happy spring!
Total Time: 30 minutes
What I put in the salad (Serving: 4)
250 g Vermicelli – soak in hot boiling water for about 3-4 minutes (please check the instruction on the package), then wash it in a running cold water
1 Carrot – shredded big, or sliced small
1 Cucumber – shredded big, or use a peeler
2 Chilies – sliced
150 g Shrimps – boiled
80 g Bean Sprouts – cook for about a minute in a boiling water
The Sauce (Serving: 2)
1 cup hot water
¼ cup fish sauce
¼ cup lime juice (about 3-4 limes, depends on the size)
¼ cup sugar
1 garlic, chopped (optional)
2 chilies (as you like)
chopped coriander (optional)
- Dissolve sugar in hot water, then add other ingredients in.
- I would recommend to “massage” the lime before cutting to help releasing the juice even more.
