Cambodian-Style Rice Noodle Salad with Shrimp, Cucumber and Herbs
This noodle salad is a version of one that we tasted in Cambodia. Vegetables, herbs and chopped peanuts add tons of color and texture to tender rice vermicelli noodles. Cambodia is famous for its Kampot pepper—here we use a generous measure of ground black pepper plus a fresh chili to add multilayered spiciness to the savory-sweet dressing. We like the salad best with a combination of cilantro, mint and basil, but it’s still delicious made with only one herb. And if you like, omit the shrimp or substitute 2 cups shredded cooked chicken.
ounces rice vermicelli
English cucumber, halved lengthwise, seeded and thinly sliced into half moons
01Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the noodles and cook until tender, 2 to 3 minutes. Drain in a colander, then rinse under running cold water, tossing, until fully cooled. Drain again. Use kitchen shears to snip the noodles in several places to cut them into shorter lengths. Transfer to a large bowl; set aside.
