1 pkg. vermicelli (white rice noodles)
assorted vegetables, e.g. carrot, bean sprouts, red/ green peppers, zucchini, etc.
chopped peanuts or other nuts of your choice
4 Tbsp. fish sauce
2 Tbsp. rice vinegar
2 Tbsp. freshly squeezed lime juice
2 Tbsp. sugar, honey or substitute
1 fresh hot red chili chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
2 Tbsp. carrot, grated
4 Tbsp. water
To prepare rice vermicelli, soak in boiled water for 3 – 5 minutes (don’t soak too long or the noodles will be mushy). Drain and rinse with cold water. Toss vermicelli with vegetables and dressing. Top with grilled meat or tofu if desired. Garnish with chopped peanuts.
