Mint is my new love. This dish is flavorful, fresh, easy and fast. I could eat this every day. (The picture that I'm posting shows the noodles with roasted pork fillet with sesame seeds)

  1. Cool the rice noodles in a saucepan of boiling water for 2-3 minutes or until soft.
  2. Drain, rinse under cold water and drain again.

Wonderful & refreshing! Great side for marinated grilled strips of lamb on skewers! Did add 1/2 cup or so of minced scallions. Plan to serve this as a side for some firey hot BBQ'd shrimp soon since we are apparently not going to get any winter here & the mint is growing crazy. TY for a surprisingly fine keeper! Will add Thai basil to it in the real spring once the basil is up & growing.

Great base recipe. LOVE the mint here. The dish as is seems a little sweet to me. Garlic and onion of some sort would really balance that nicely. This would be really nice with some added veggies too. Thanks for a really different recipe! Made for Newest Tag!
