  • Greens on the bottom, then rice noodles, and place veggies and chicken around the sides of the bowl.
  • garnish with the Sriracha Mayo, Lime juice and lime wedges, and sprinkle some green onion slices, and sesame seeds over the top if you like for a lovely look.

For the tangy mint, coriander – lime creamy Sriracha mayo;

  • In a mixer or mixing bowl,
  • Chopped coriander, chopped mint, diced red chili, rice wine vinegar, juice of a lime, salt and pepper Normally the sauce has some form of sugar in it, however, I like to omit the sugar.
  • 1 Tbsp. of Honey would be a nice addition.
  • Whips or whisk these ingredients together, and then slowly drizzle in the EV Olive oil till you get a creamy consistency. Whip it Good!
  • A Tbsp. of Sesame oil also works nicely in this dressing.
