Noodle salads are simple to prepare and one of the easiest foods to digest. The longer the dressing sits with the noodles the yummier they become. If you love garlic and would like to give this salad an extra kick, grate a clove into the dressing.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
250g buckwheat noodles
200g snow peas, trimmed
1 cup shelled peas
1/2 cup finely sliced cucumber

Dressing

Quantity Ingredient
1 avocado
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 teaspoon dill, roughly chopped
pinch chilli powder

Method

  1. Cook the noodles using the ‘shock’ method (see note). Refresh under cold running water, then drain and set aside.[
  2. Blanch the snow peas and peas separately in boiling water until al dente. Refresh under cold running water. Finely slice the snow peas.
  3. For the dressing, peel the avocado, remove the stone and spoon the flesh into a food processor. Add the remaining dressing ingredients and purée until creamy and smooth. Spoon the dressing over the noodles. Add the snow peas, peas and cucumber and toss to combine. Serve immediately or allow to marinate for 30 minutes if time permits.

Note

  • To prepare noodles with the 'shock' method, bring a large saucepan of water to the boil, drop in the noodles, stir them and quickly add a cup of cold water to ‘shock’ them. Repeat this method of ‘shocking’ up to three times and then check the noodle for doneness. The noodle is ready when cooked through but still firm. Refresh the noodles under cold running water if they are to be used later and add a teaspoon of sesame oil so they don’t stick together.
