HHDH#27: Sugar Snap Pea, Cucumber, Mint & Tofu Summer Salad.
Reach for the smelling salts.
Not only have I quite possibly returned to blogging, but I have (dun dun dun!) entered a blogging event!!
It's ok. I can wait till you've recovered. Take your time.
I saw there was a new Hey Hey It's Donna Hay!, & since we've very nearly deified her in our house....it seemed as good a reason to do this again as any.
The current 'challenge' was given by Akshayapaatram in conjunction with Chez Us: a light, fresh summer salad.
This is very much how we've been eating around here, anyway.
Yes, we made some changes to the original recipe. A strong dislike of bean thread noodles (on my part) led to the substitution of rice noodles. Instead of green beans, there were sugar snap peas, one of my favorites vegetables of all time. Foul, dish soap-y cilantro got the heave-ho.Oh! Tofu. Added cubes of tofu. And instead of fish sauce in the dressing we used soy (2/3 vegetarians, remember) & put sriracha in there instead of chillies in the salad, itself.
Really good, & as it should be. Light & fresh & cool.
