The japanese are known for their healthy way of cooking food. They have balanced meals using fresh ingredients. This recipe is courtesy Visha Vasnani of Tenerife who has been brought up in Japan. She is right now having health issues , so I extend her postive vibes to get well soon and encourage her to share her knowledge of Japanese cooking with all of us.

INGREDIENTS PER PERSON:
1 cup of cooked noodles ( she used THESE)
1/4 cup of grated carrots
1/4 cup of boiled chicken, shredded, use NITU DIDI MAGICAL SCISSORS to shred chicken easily
1/4 cup of of sliced cucumbers
1/4 cup of shredded omlette (make a fine omlette and shred it )
1/2 tomato, sliced
sesame seeds in abundance
Can also add bean sprouts
FOR THE DRESSING:
light soya sauce
drops of sesame oil
tahini paste (to make it at home see
brown sugar
a few drops of vinegar or mirin
METHOD:
This dish requires no cooking. Mix the ingredients for the dressing and leave them to blend. If you like it sweeter you can add more sugar. In a plate add the boiled and cooled noodles and then place the ingredients as shown on the pic. Sprinkle with lots of sesame seeds and then pour the dressing over. Mix and eat !
NITU DIDI TIP.
This is a one dish meal per person. Each person can also assemble their salad with their favourite ingredients. For  a vegetarian version you can also used grilled and shredded tofu, corn, cabbage etc.
