This noodle salad is really easy! And it tastes great, so it's a win-win! You just need to boil the noodles, mix a quick marinade and mix with prepped veggies and diced ham. Simples, right? Enjoy!


1. Cook the noodles according to the packet and blanch with cold water in a sieve or colander.

2. Beat soy sauce, brown sugar, vinegar and water in a small saucepan. Bring to the boil and let simmer for about five minutes, until it's thickened slightly. Have a taste - you want the taste half sweet, half sour. Let the sauce cool.

3. Drain the sweetcorn, peel carrots and cut into strips. Clean and rinse the bell pepper and cut into strips. Rinse sugarsnap peas or blanch them for about 30 seconds and rinse with cold water, if the package says so.

4. Mix the noodles with ham, veggies and the marinade, and top with peanuts and optionally a sprinkle of herbs, if you have some to hand. Do avoid herb sprinkles for kids younger than 3.

5. Enjoy!
