  • 10 ounce box angel hair or capellini pasta
  • 1 tbsp toasted sesame oil
  • 1 Granny Smith apple cut into wedges and thinly sliced
  • ½ seedless cucumber cut into thin half-moons (I used sugar snap peas from the garden instead!)
  • 2 scallions thinly sliced
  • 2 ½ cups chicken shredded
  • ¼ cup fresh mint thinly sliced (optional)


  • ¼ cup fresh lime juice about 3 limes
  • 2 tbsp light brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp sesame oil additional
  • 2 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1 red chili or ½ tsp crushed red pepper flakes (optional)
  • salt & pepper to taste


  • Prep: Start by cooking the noodles according to package directions. Then, rinse the pasta under cold water to cool, then toss with the sesame oil.
  • Also, core and slice the apple into thin wedges. Then, dice they cucumber into half-moon shape pieces and the scallions into thin bits as well. You will also need the chicken cooked before assembling this salad. I use a rotisserie chicken for ease, but you can also do it yourself. Here is an easy recipe for shredded chicken to try!
  • Make dressing: In a large bowl, whisk together the lime juice, sesame oil, rice vinegar, brown sugar, red chili (if using), ½ teaspoon salt and ½ teaspoon pepper. Stir to combine all ingredients well.
  • Combine: Add the apple, cucumber, and scallions to the dressing mixture and toss to coat. Next, slice or shred the chicken and add it to the apple-cucumber mixture and toss to combine.
  • Lastly, add the noodles and mint to the dressing mixture and toss again to coat all the ingredients well. Serve immediately and enjoy!
