Julie’s Summer Vermicelli Salad

A satisfying, sesame-infused noodle salad studded with nutty surprises

It has been *super* scorching in the UK lately, the kind of scorching that makes me wonder what I can whip up for lunch without expending too much energy!

Enter the cold vermicelli salad: a lovely fresh option for summer that requires minimal effort but is still big on flavour. This one is a great accompaniment to the main event at a summer BBQ, but works equally well as a quick and healthy lunch on its own. It’s also a great option for all my vegan and vegetarian buddies out there .

Serves
1, easily scalable
Ingredients

80g bean thread vermicelli or glass noodles (dry weight)
1/4 tsp dried chilli flakes
2 pinches white pepper
2 pinches salt
1/4 tsp sugar
1 spring onions, chopped
1-2 tbsp crushed nuts (any kind will do!)
1 tsp sesame oil
1/4 tsp rice wine vinegar (other vinegars should work too!)

Soak the vermicelli in hot water for 5-10 minutes, then drain. Leave to cool.
Add the rest of the ingredients to the vermicelli. Gently toss to coat in all the lovely flavours. Pile the salad high on a plate and enjoy!

    Hi girls! Greetings from Brazil!
    I was really happy to find you on Jamie Oliver`s youtube channel, congrats for your videos! I am loving all the recipes!
    I lived in Taiwan for a year (2007-2008) and two of my host families had restaurants, so I had the chance to truly fall in love with asian food!
    That is something I really miss here in Brazil and it is really nice to see these tasty and easy recipes in your website!
    I would like to ask you about the possibility of making a video about the main Chinese/Asian sauces, oils, vinegars and herbs, with English (and Chinese names if possible) in adition to that nice supermarket visit video you girls did. Because it would be easier for your foreigners followers to go to special asian supermarkets to look for rice vinegar or special sauces (oyster, sweet&sour, plum sauce, other…) that you use in your recipes …I personally can`t remember the name of all the sauces, and herbs that I use to have in Taiwan…(I loved the homemade satay sauce recipe you did, I`m definitely doing that one!)
    When I go to Chinese supermarket I just don`t now what to do with so many ingredients…or even which ones are the most important to have at home…
    That would be really nice of you!
    Again congrats for your website and videos!
