Cellophane bean threads are easy to work with and are a lighter alternative to pasta. They also require minimal cooking. Tossed with Thai-inspired arugula-and-basil pesto, they make a perfect bed for crunchy, fresh DOLE® Very Veggie salad. 

Ingredients

  • 2 cups DOLE® Arugula 
  • 1 cup fresh basil leaves 
  • 1/2 cup toasted hazelnuts 
  • 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese 
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil 
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil 
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar 
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice 
  • 2 tablespoons grated fresh ginger 
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt, plus more for seasoning 
  • 1 pkg. (8.8 oz.) cellophane bean threads or rice noodles 
  • 1 pkg. (12 oz.) DOLE Very Veggie 
  • 12 cooked DOLE Asparagus Spears 
  • 8 DOLE Brussels Sprouts, thinly sliced 
  • 3 DOLE Radishes, thinly sliced 
  • 8 mint leaves, finely chopped

Directions

  1. Combine arugula, basil, hazelnuts, Parmesan, sesame oil, olive oil, rice vinegar, ginger, lime juice, and salt in blender or food processor. Cover; blend until smooth.
  2. Break cellophane bean threads in half and soften in warm water for 10 minutes. Drain the noodles and add to a pot of boiling water for 30 seconds. Drain again.
  3. Transfer noodles to a mixing bowl and toss with half the pesto, set aside. Toss remaining pesto with the salad blend.
  4. Arrange the bean threads around the outside of a serving platter or bowl. Nest the dressed salad blend in the center. Scatter asparagus spears, sliced Brussels sprouts, radishes and mint over the top.

Tip: Use this pesto for other recipes too. It is full flavor and will be delicious when it is served on fish, chicken, vegetables or grains.
