Ingredients

  • 500g leftover free-range roast chicken or turkey, shredded
  • 300g carrots, cut into ribbons with a peeler
  • 300g white cabbage, finely shredded
  • 1 cucumber, cut into matchsticks
  • 125g medium egg noodles
  • Bunch fresh coriander, freshly chopped
  • Bunch fresh mint, roughly chopped
  • 80g salted peanuts (optional)

For the dressing

  • Juice 1 lime
  • 1 small red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
  • 4 tsp fish sauce

Method

  1. Combine the chicken/turkey, carrots, white cabbage and cucumber in a large mixing bowl. Cook the noodles according to the packet instructions, drain and rinse under warm water (to wash off excess starch that will make the noodles stick together), then drain again and add to the bowl.
  2. Whisk the dressing ingredients together in a small bowl, then toss with the salad. Stir in the herbs and scatter with peanuts, if you like.
