Colorful Glass Noodle Salad with Crispy Tofu and Chili Lime Dressing

Colorful Glass Noodle Salad with Crispy Tofu and Chili Lime Dressing

When the covid lockdown was in full swing at the beginning of the year and a visit to a restaurant seemed soooo far away, I had cravings for the things that I normally like to order in my favorite restaurants.

This also includes the glass noodle salad with tofu, which is available at Kitti Chai. So I sat down and rummaged through my memory of everything that goes into the salad. The trickiest part was the dressing. But at some point I had put together a mixture that came very close to the original.

And now the recipe before you start drooling. 😉
Enojy your meal!
