Prawn and Crunchy Noodle Salad

  • Author: The 4 Blades

You really can’t go past a crunchy noodle salad! This one is delicious and fresh, thanks to the addition of prawns. You can make this salad in advance – simply add the noodles just before serving to maintain that delicious crunchy texture. We like using shredded veggies in this salad for a more authentic end result.

Recipe Tester Feedback: “This salad was amazing. It’s deceptively filling and quite large. It’s definitely enough to be a meal on its own.” – Kirsty
