  • 3 tbsp fish sauce
  • 1/2 red chilli, finely chopped

For the salad:

  • 1 carrot

YOU’LL NEED

  • Spiralizer
  • Medium bowl
  • frying pan
  • Pestle and Mortar

METHOD

  • For the dressing, whisk together the caster sugar with the zest and juice of the lime and fish sauce until the caster sugar has dissolved. Add in the red chilli and whisk through. Toast the peanuts in a dry frying pan until golden and then remove from the pan and bash roughly in a pestle and mortar.
  • Attach one carrot to the machine and twist that handle! Do the exactly same with the cucumber and you should be left with long vegetable noodles. Put all the vegetables in a large mixing bowl and add in some finely sliced shallots, finely sliced red chilli and a handful of bean sprouts and some fresh mint leaves. Pour over the dressing and give it a good toss to combine.
  • Serve it up with some more mint leaves, peanuts and a little chilli for extra spice and colour!
