Here is a healthy and delicious treat I first started making last summer. Its the perfect dish for this heat crazed season as it doesn’t require any cooking. Its also full of lots of healthy vegetables (just can use whatever you have lying around), plus it tastes pretty damn good too. Need I say more……



1 red pepper

1 yellow pepper

1 green pepper (I had a lot of peppers in my fridge but you can just use one or two)

1/2 cucumber

1/4 red cabbage

1-2 large handfuls of bean sprouts

300g of rice noodles (you can use any kind of noodles or long pasta if you don’t have the rice ones)

200g-300g of leftover cooked chicken (you can use any meat or fish you have though)

10 spring onions


4 tables spoons of sweet chili sauce

2 tablespoons of sesame seed oil

1 tablespoon of soy sauce

2-3 tables spoons of lemon juice (1 lemon plus the zest)

A pinch of Chinese five spice (optional)


Slice your cucumber, cabbage and peppers into thin long slices. Throw them into a bowl with the bean sprouts, rice noodles and  cooked chicken. Mix together then add the dressing and mix again. Top with the sliced spring onions. Voila a delicious and nutritious dinner in minutes.
