Rice Noodle Salad with Avocado, Mango, and Chile

photo: Scott Phillips

Servings: 4

This cool noodle salad is just what you want on a hot summer night. A great vegetarian main, it would also be tasty with grilled shrimp or scallops. For best results, use avocados that are just ripe.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice (from about 2 limes)
  • 1/4 cup mirin
  • 4 tsp. Asian (toasted) sesame oil
  • 2 tsp. minced fresh Thai bird chile or similar; more to taste
  • Kosher salt
  • 8 oz. rice noodles (not vermicelli)
  • 2 firm-ripe Hass avocados (about 6 oz. each), diced
  • 1 ripe mango, peeled, pitted, and diced
  • 2 Tbs. chopped fresh basil, preferably Thai basil; more for garnish
  • 1/3 cup salted dry-roasted peanuts, chopped
  • 1 lime, cut into wedges, for serving

Preparation

  • Prepare the noodles according to package directions, drain, and rinse with cold water.
  • In a medium bowl, gently toss the avocados, mango, and basil with enough of the vinaigrette to coat lightly. In a large bowl, toss the noodles with enough of the remaining vinaigrette to moisten well. Serve the noodles topped with the avocado mixture, peanuts, and basil. Pass the lime wedges and any remaining vinaigrette at the table.

    We really enjoyed this salad. I too cut back on the olive oil and used a little more sesame oil and lime juice.

    I liked this salad a lot! I agree the dressing needs a little more flavor, but I will make it again because the combination of ingredients was great! Why not use rice vermicelli? That's what it looks like in the picture.

    I really liked this refreshing salad. Like others I cut back on the olive oil considerably but I also ramped up the sesame oil and lime juice a bit. A healthy dose of fresh ground pepper and a finishing salt topped it off. Next time I will serve it with scallops.
