Pawpaw salad : Wk52/4

Serves 4 : Very easy : Very quick
65gm 2-minute noodles
1 small pawpaw (papino), sliced
6 spring onions, sliced diagonally
200gm bean sprouts
½ cucumber, cut in thick matchsticks
2 large carrots, grated
Small bunch of fresh mint, chopped
Small bunch coriander, chopped
3 smoked chicken breasts, sliced
1 Tblsp sesame oil
2 Tblsp lemon juice
1 Tblsp Roses lime cordial
1 Tblsp soy sauce
1 tsp grated ginger
2 garlic cloves, crushed
Lemon wedges
2 Tblsp sesame seeds

Don’t be dismayed by the long list of ingredients.
This is so quick and easy.

Break the noodles into a bowl.
Cover with boiling water and allow to stand for 5 minutes while you make the dressing.

Mix together all the dressing ingredients in a small jug or screw-top jar.

Rinse the noodles in cold water and drain.
Peel, de-seed and slice the pawpaw.
Place in a large bowl, along with the onions, sprouts, cucumber, carrots, mint and coriander.
Add the noodles and chicken and toss well.

Pile onto 4 dinner plates or bowls.
Garnish with lemon wedges and sesame seeds.
Let everyone serve their own dressing.
I used smoked chicken breasts, but you could use left-over chicken or turkey – in which case you will need about 400gms of meat, chopped or shredded.
