Yum Woon Sen - Glass Noodle Salad - Two Ways
I have been craving Thai Salad. Maybe it's because I have been eating those make-your-own salads from the deli next to my work almost everyday for lunch. Maybe it's just another attempt of mine trying to eat healthy at home.
Last week I made Laab from ground turkey. I had a bit of the cooked turkey left so I bought these wonderful glass noodle or mung bean noodle or woon-sen in Thai.
From a package of woon-sen, I got two different salad based on what I had in the refrigerator.
One with less noodle but more vegetables - cherry tomatoes and flat-leaf cilantro served over lettuce. And the other one with more noodle and with dry baby shrimp.
The basic ingredients are the same - the woon-sen soaked in hot water for a few minutes, chopped shallots and chilies, cooked ground turkey (or other meat), fish sauce and lime juice. And whatever fresh vegetable you have that you deem fit to be in the salad. Everything tossed together and served immediately.
I love Thai food. So simple and tasty.
