I’m a huge fan of ethnic food and love dishes that pack a ton of flavour.  This cold Thai Noodle Salad is so fresh and flavourful and it’s perfect for dinner or brining as a dish to a potluck. It is really easy to make and it is better when made in advance so it has time to marinate.  The recipe serves 6 and is always a hit when I make it for friends.  Hope you enjoy this one as much as I do!!
