Coconut Lime Rice Noodle Salad




Coconut Lime Rice Noodle Salad
Ingredients
2 ounces brown rice maifun noodles, also known as brown rice vermicelli (TRY: Annie Chun’s Maifun Brown Rice Noodles) or my favorite yam noodles
2 1/2 tablespoons coconut milk
2 1/2 teaspoons fresh lime juice
1 1/4 teaspoons avocado oil
1 pinch sea salt
1/2 medium mango, peeled, pitted and thinly sliced into 2-inch lengths
1/2 medium red bell pepper, seeded and thinly sliced into 2-inch lengths
1/2 small English cucumber, seeded and thinly sliced into 2-inch lengths
1/2 avocado, peeled, pitted and chopped
1/2 jalapeño chile pepper, seeded and thinly sliced
2 tablespoons roughly chopped fresh cilantro leaves
1 tablespoon chopped raw unsalted cashews (toasted, if desired)
Directions
Prepare noodles according to package directions. Drain and rinse with cold water; set aside to dry.
Prepare dressing: In a small jar with a tight-fitting lid, combine coconut milk, lime juice, oil and salt; seal and shake well to combine. Divide among 2 small watertight storage containers.
In 2 large storage containers, divide half each of noodles, mango, bell pepper, cucumber, avocado, jalapeño, cilantro and cashews.
NOTE: For maximum freshness, chop avocado and cilantro no more than 12 hours before serving.
To serve, shake dressing well and top salad with dressing, then toss to coat.
