How to make it
- I first prepped my meat, dusting it in pepper and rubbed a little minced garlic on it, setting it aside so it could marinate and grow closer to room temperature.
- Mix the dressing, it's something to be made to taste, find a balance you like.
- Next, combine the salad ingredients and add the dressing. Ensure it's all evenly distributed and the dressing is mixed well with the noodles. Allow to sit and the flavours combine.
- To cook the meat, I used a non stick pan with no added oil. High heat, so I could gain a nice caramelisation on each side but still maintain a pink and tender middle. Let it rest for a few minutes before finely slicing and adding to the salad.
