Asian Noodles with Chargrilled Beef and Sweet Soy Lime Dressing

asian noodles

You'll never want to order a takeaway again once you've tried these noodles. 

A perfect salad for picnics, lunches or a light meal. Noodles are always popular especially when bathed in this sweet soy and lime dressing made with Groovy Food’s high five oil. Colourful and glistening with a whole array of fresh tasting vegetables this is incredibly healthy too. Instead of beef you could add large prawns, salmon or chunks of roasted tofu for a vegetarian option.
