    PanNan's Note:

    I made this recipe in a Thai noodle cooking class. It tasted so good and fresh, and was very easy. Great for a summer evening when you want something that's filling and delicious, but not served hot.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 2 (3 1/2 ounce) packages mung bean noodles (bean thread noodles)
    • 1 1/2 lbs ground turkey (or ground pork, thinly sliced cooked pork, cooked shrimp, or shredded cooked chicken, your choice)
    • 2 large carrots, cut match stick style (about 1 cup)
    • 2 celery ribs, thinly sliced (about 1/2 cup)
    • 2 shallots, thinly sliced (about 1/4 cup)
    • 1/2 cup green onion, chopped
    • 1/2 cup cilantro, chopped
    • 1 cup roasted peanuts, unsalted
    • 1 bunch romaine lettuce, torn
    • 1/4 head cabbage, chopped
    • 1 teaspoon chili flakes



    1. 1
      Soak mung bean noodles in warm water for 15 minutes. Drain and cut into short lengths and place in a bowl. Pour hot water over the noodles and soak for another 5 minutes. Drain in a colander, and rinse with cold water to separate the noodles. Let stand in the colander until ready to use.
    2. 2
      Cook ground turkey with a little water over medium heat. When brown, drain any excess water, and place in a large mixing bowl. Let cool 5 minutes.
    3. 3
      Mix dressing ingredients in a small bowl, and taste for proper balance of sweet/sour/salty/spicy. Adjust if necessary. Pour dressing over cooked ground turkey and toss lightly.
    4. 4
      Add noodles and stir until well mixed. Taste and adjust if necessary.
    5. 5
      Add carrot, celery, shallot, green onion, cilantro, and 1/2 cup of peanuts. Toss well.
    6. 6
      Divide lettuce and cabbage on serving plates. Place noodle mixture on top, and sprinkle with remaining peanut, and chili flakes.

      This was a nice salad but I did not care for the dressing- fish sauce overpowered. I used shredded chicken breast and almonds rather than peanuts. I will make this again using less fish sauce- maybe replacing some of it with rice vinegar. Thanks for sharing this PanNan!

      This salad was good, but I agree that the fish sauce was just too overpowering. I also used shredded chicken and peanuts. My husband and I ate this, but my kids wouldn't. I will try again at a later time with a different dressing using less fish sauce. Made for the Asian round of ZWT9 for team Tasty Testers.
