Print Mooli and sesame salad

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 & cut into thin batons
  • 1 carrot, peeled & cut into thin batons
  • 1 red pepper, de-seeded & cut into thin batons
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp rice wine vinegar (or use white wine vinegar)
  • Handful fresh coriander leaves, roughly chopped


  1. Cook the rice noodles according to the packet instructions.
  2. Drain, refresh in a bowl of cold water to cool, then drain again and toss in a bowl with the sesame oil.
  3. Add the rest of the ingredients and toss together.
