Mai Fun Salad (Rice Noodles)

Excellent dish for hot days and as a side dish for that BBQ!

servings: 6
time: 25 minutes

1 package rice noodles, Mai Fun (1 lb)
6 oz chopped turkey breast
6 oz chopped mozzarella
1 carrot (grated or diced very small)
½ cup chopped olives
1 chopped tomato (or 12 cherry tomatoes, halved)
1 cup chopped mushrooms (optional)
½ onion, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
chopped parsley and chives, to taste
juice of 1 lemon
salt to taste
3 tbs olive oil

1 – In a large bowl, add all ingredients (except the pasta) and season with salt, lemon juice and olive oil. Mix well and set aside.
2 – Following the instructions in the noodles' package, boil water in a large pan and place noodles to cook (mine took only 3 minutes). Remove from pan, drain the water and put the noodles in a bowl with ice water for 2 minutes.
3 – Drain the water and mix Mai Fun to the other ingredients. Serve cold.

Tips and Options

  • Add corn, peas and/or chopped bell peppers to the recipe. Chopped ham is also a great combination.
  • Without using any type of meat, the dish is a great choice to please vegetarians.

Original recipe (in Portuguese): Salada de Bifum (macarrão de arroz).
