Bun Thit Nuong Cold Noodle Salad
You begin by cooking Rice noodles in boiling water after they have been soaked for 30 minutes.
When they are cooked all the way through the noodles will be strained and then washed two times in cold and then room temp water
Nuoc Mam Dressing (Vinegar, Sugar, Fish Sauce, Carrot, Sambal, garlic)
2.5 parts Water
1.5 parts Sugar
1 part Vinegar
1 part Fish Sauce

Toss the noodles in nuoc mam and throw in a salad bowl
Cover the noodles with herbs and cut vegetables
Mint, Thai basil, cilantro, napa cabbage, watercress, red onion, bean sprouts, carrot etc…
Add your favorite grilled protein to the bowl (skewers of lemongrass chicken, shrimp or caramel marinated beef)
My mother in laws favorite is to add cut up fried egg rolls on top as well!
