BBQ Vermicelli Salad, Mango and Gai Lan
I was so famished when I got home today... I wanted something really quick.
BBQ. Soaking noodles. Quick.
4 cups Gai Lan or other Asian greens
1/2 package vermicelli noodles
Protein (we had pork chops, brushed with maple syrup and garlic chili sauce - go for chicken! tofu!)
3 green onions, chopped on the bias
1 ripe mango, sliced
2 cloves garlic, minced
*Soak the vermicelli until soft, mix with some sesame oil and juice of one lime. Toss with the fresh herbs.
*Cook your protein (tofu, chicken, pork, shrimp...), cut into slices and set aside
*Sauté your greens in a mix of vegetable and sesame oil + garlic. Toss with the grated rind of one lemon and juice of one half lemon. Season with salt. Set aside.
*Assemble the salad!!! Gai Lan, noodles, protein, mango, green onions.
