Vietnamese Noodle Salad

I wanted to include quick and tasty salads in my lunch options, this one is super simple but the dressing brings it all to life. You can either have this completely veggie or it would be cracking with prawns or chicken. I was inspired by one of my favourite dips that comes with the crispy squid at Pho, a Vietnamese street food restaurant. Punchy and tangy, the perfect balance of sweet and sour. You can even add a hotter chilli if you are brave enough. It would be the perfect accompaniment to dip crispy chicken in. If you aren’t a fan of udon noodles like my Husband, it would be lovely with vermicelli. The dressing is packed full of flavour, so you will only need about 2 teaspoons per serving. You also won’t need any added salt as you get enough from the fish sauce.

Sweet Potato & Bacon Salad

After making a heap of desserts, I needed something light. I’ve become obsessed with salads lately, you can make so many different combinations. As I try and tell my Husband, salads are more than lettuce. Having a go at my own vinaigrette was lovely too. This salad is fresh, sweet, salty and the dressing packs a punch that lifts the whole thing. I hope you like it, because if I can impress my Husband with a salad, I think I’m on to a winner.
