TV Dinner: Vietnamese Shrimp and Glass Noodle Salad

By: Mark Levine

Need a dinner idea for tonight?  At 4pm ET, Nigella Lawson is whipping up a simple, sexy salad that should cement her title as Kitchen Goddess...

In her Feel Good Food episode (today, 4pm ET), Nigella puts fresh Asian flair and taste into your regular comfort food roster.  Watch her in action this afternoon and then make it tonight.

This light but delicious salad has only five main ingredients and comes together quickly.  Better yet, the Vietnamese dressing will keep in your fridge for up to a week.

Cook's Note: Her recipe calls for groundnut oil which is simply a British term for peanut oil. If you don't have peanut oil on hand, you can use sesame oil in this recipe since you aren't stir frying or heating the oil.  Peanut oil has a high smoke point but in the case of a cold salad, sesame oil can work.
