Ingredients

Salad:

  • 3.5 oz. dry rice noodles
  • a handful of snap peas, chopped
  • 1-2 scallions, thinly sliced
  • 1-2 shaved radishes
  • Handful of mustard greens, finely chopped
  • ½ cup tofu – chopped into small squares
  • Toasted sesame for garnish

Dressing:

  • 1 tablespoon ground sesame seeds (we used a Japanese mortar and pestle) 
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon rice vinegar
  • 2 Tablespoons mayonnaise

Preparation

Soak the noodles in hot water for 10 minutes (or if package instructions are different, follow them). Meanwhile slice radishes paper thin and cut the tofu into small cubes and set aside. Mix with the sauce and ingredients in a bowl.

Drain the rice noodles, pat dry. Separate the strands with your hands and cut the noodles in half. Transfer to a big bowl and add the radishes, scallions, mustard greens and tofu. Mix well. Dress with sesame dressing and garnish with toasted sesame seeds.
