Prawn and Orange Noodle Salad.

It's very hot today for the first full day of Summer. Not so much hot in temperature but hot in humidity. It's not a day to heat up anything cooking or otherwise. A cool supper out on the back sundeck was in order.

Combine in a large Salad Bowl:
1/3 cup Soy Sauce
1/4 cup fresh Lime Juice
3 TBSP Vegetable Oil
2 Garlic cloves, minced
2-3 tsp fresh Grated Ginger
Pinch Chili Flakes
Cook 1-250gram package Rice Noodles,according to package directions
350grams cooked Salad Shrimp
1 large Orange, peeled and sectioned. (Can use Mango too)
1/3 English Cucumber, thinly sliced
1/4 thinly sliced red Onion
1/2 Yellow Pepper, thinly sliced
1/2 cup Roasted Cashews,coarsely chopped
1/4 cup fresh Cilantro, chopped.
Add Noodles and remaining ingredients to the salad dressing in large bowl and toss to combine ingredients.

I think this salad would of gone really nice with an ice cold glass of something like Chardonnay but I did not have any here. Next time though!!

Bon Appetit!!
