Glass Noodle Salad with Oriental Dressing


Salads are something that I personally want with my meals. it can be as simple as just an onion & tomato salad, or sometimes when in a mood, they can be anything out of the box.
Apart from making food for the house, I also make for friends, and take orders as well. 
So this time, I planned to make something from the vegetables and the produce I had at home and came up with this, healthy and simple salad.

Strands of Green and Yellow Zucchini - 70 gms

Method - 
For the Dressing -
1. In a bowl, take the chopped garlic, sugar, red chillies, fish sauce, soy sauce, vinegar or lemon juice and start whisking.

3. Once all the oil is poured, check the seasoning and all the ingredients are emulsified.

For the Salad -
