Whip up a healthy, eye-catching satay chicken and noodle salad using skewers from Woolworths and fresh produce from our friends at Morley Fresh. This salad makes the perfect family meal with loads of veggies and herbs piled onto gluten free vermicelli noodles. My children will eat anything with noodles so this salad is bound to become a go-to in our home. Serve the skewers just cooked and warm or have them pre cooked and serve as a cold salad.

INGREDIENTS

Sesame dressing

METHOD

  • In a pan over medium heat, cook the satay sticks, turning at the 4 minute mark for another four minutes or until cooked through and set aside.
  • Meanwhile, cook vermicelli to packet directions, drain and set aside.
  • For the dressing, place all ingredients in a 350ml jar and shake to combine.
  • Place the cooked noodles into a bowl with half the dressing and toss to coat.
  • Place the noodles onto a large platter and top with the veggies, sprouts and half of the coriander.
  • Top the salad with the warm satay skewers, chilli, spring onions, remaining coriander and some lime circles.
  • Finish by sprinkling the salad and skewers with chopped salted peanuts and serve with remaining dressing.

STYLING NOTES

This patterned Maxwell Williams platter from Myer is the perfect match for an Asian-inspired salad. The wooden servers lend an organic feel to the setting and the soft green cotton napkins elevate the table making it feel like you’ve made an effort for your guests or family. The Finn cutlery is so versatile as the wood-look handles work in with most crockery. Salads look gorgeous when served on a shallow plate with a lip. It allows you to see all the inclusions rather than have them buried in a deep bowl.

COOK’S NOTES

  • This is such a simple throw-together salad and with the satay sticks already prepared, the main portion of the dish is minutes away from ready.
  • This is a great way to get veggies into children. My kids will eat almost anything served with noodles!
  • You can pre-slice the veggies and have the noodles cooked and throw the salad together at the last minute as needed.
  • Swap peanuts for roasted cashews and even leave them whole to toss through the noodle salad.
  • Use any seasonal veggies your family enjoys simply use my suggestions as a guide.
