Mooli and sesame salad

Starter Serves 2 15 min
A fresh vegetarian cold noodle salad with strips of crunchy veg. This is good for a simple, healthy dinner or in a lunch box. Add strips of cooked chicken if you'd like more substance. A mooli, or daikon, is a mild, crunchy kind of radish. You could use ordinary radishes in its place, but include a smaller weight as they'll be more peppery.


  • 100g rice noodles
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 mooli (about 200-250g), peeled and cut into thin batons
  • 1 carrot, peeled and cut into thin batons
  • 1 red pepper, de-seeded and cut into thin batons
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp rice wine vinegar (or use white wine vinegar)
  • handful fresh coriander leaves, roughly chopped
