Satay Inspired Carrot Salad recipe

Preparation Time: 10 minutes

Make the most of super fresh, crunchy carrots by slicing them extra thin and tossing them in a zingy Thai dressing made with fish sauce, lime juice and sugar along with paper thin rice noodles. Finish with crunchy peanuts and sliced chilli for a satay-inspired salad.


  • 100g rice noodles
  • 3 large carrots
  • 2 red chillies
  • 2 shallots
  • 4 tbsp. Thai fish sauce
  • Juice of 2 limes
  • 1 tbsp. brown sugar
  • Small bunch each fresh mint and coriander
  • Small handful roasted peanuts


  1. Finely dice the carrots, so you have long "strings" of carrots, or put them through a box grater.

  2. Soak the rice noodles according to the packet instructions. Thinly slice the chillies, removing the seeds if desired, and finely slice the shallots. In a bowl, stir together most of the chillies, shallots, fish sauce, lime juice and brown sugar. Season to taste.

  3. Add the carrots and noodles and toss to coat. Pour onto a serving platter and sprinkle with mint, coriander, peanuts and the extra chillies to serve.

For added crunch and texture, you might want to add some finely sliced courgette to this salad. Recipe serves 2.
