Hoisin pork noodle salad

This dish took only 10 minutes to make and tasted delicious so it is definitely worth a try. We decided to make this for our lunch because we had some spare time since it is holidays. None of the ingredients for this recipe are too expensive which is good because we had to buy them ourselves.

This dish sounds very similar to the other pork noodle dish that we made but it is actually very different.

This dish is definitely a step up from the regular sandwich that Emily and I usually have in our lunch because it is very flavoursome and yummy!! Variations of this recipe include adding more or less than the recommended amount of hoisin sauce, using a different type of noodle and using chicken or beef mince instead of pork. We did not have any fresh ginger in the pantry so we had to use bottled ginger, but this still was ok in terms of flavour for the pork.
