Introduction

Beautiful fresh tasting and low fat salad. Can be served as a main course or side dish. Quantities below are enough for 2 large main courses.

These quantities for the dressing are a bit sketchy, start with the below and modify to your taste - it sort of depends on how juicy your limes are. You may need more dressing if you use the noodles as they tend to soak up dressing.
