Spicy Thai Glass Noodle Salad

At times I have to deal with boring fried chicken for dinner, I always try to come up with something extra on the side to lighten up our appetite. A good dipping sauce might work but I was longing for something more exciting and new. From my recent post about our dining experience in a Thai restaurant, I really fell in love with their glass noodle salad which I think is just perfect for anything fried. So, a quick grocery for the ingredients and a little chopping time surely did an extra twist to our usual dinner.


  • 1 cup spring onion - chopped diagonally
  • 1 cup coriander - rough chopped
  • 1 medium red onion - thinly sliced
  • 1 cup tomatoes - thinly sliced
  • 1 piece medium sized carrot - grated or thinly julienne
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili flakes
  • 1/2 kg minced chicken meat
  • 1/2 cup cashew - rough chopped
  • 1 packet of glass noodles
  • 2 tablespoon fish sauce
  • 2 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoon sweet and chili sauce
  • 1/4 cup water + 1/4 cup water
  • salt
  • pepper
  1. Soak glass noodles in a hot water for 5 minutes. Drain and set aside.
  2. Season the minced chicken meat with salt and pepper.
  3. Put the mince chicken meat in a small casserole and add 1/4 cup water. Heat it in a medium low fire. Let simmer. Once the liquid is dry, let it fry until slightly golden. Remove from heat.
  4. In a small bowl, mix fish sauce, lemon juice, sweet and chili sauce and 1/4 cup water. Set aside.  
  5. In a large bowl, mix spring onion, coriander, onion, tomatoes, carrot, chili flakes, minced chicken meat, cashew, glass noodle and the sauce mixture. Make sure that the sauce is evenly distributed.
  6. Serve and enjoy!


  1. This is good. I can't believe how easy it was! I left out the chili flakes. Spicy enough for me.

    1. Thank you for visiting Pinoy Tsibog! Yes, chili flakes is optional 😊 It will still taste very good.
