  • 1/2 pomelo peeled and crumbled
  • 70 g bean thread vermicelli
  • 1/2 zucchini chopped into short sticks
  • 2 spring onions finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup peanuts dry roasted and lightly crushed
  • 3-4 tbsp cilantro finely chopped
  • sea salt and pepper to taste try cayenne to taste

For the Dressing

  • 3 tbsp vegetable oil I used cold pressed rapeseed
  • Juice of 1/2 orange
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp ginger grated
  • 1/2 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 tsp maple syrup


  • Soak the noodles in hot water, rinse and drain as per packaging instructions. You could chop the vermicelli a little if you don't want it too long (it's easier to mix with the other ingredients when it's shorter). Set aside.
  • Combine all the salad ingredients in a large bowl. Make the dressing and pour over the salad. Stir well and serve.
