Yum Yum salad


Total preparation time: 20 min.

Yum Yum Salad - a recipe from my mom that she got at a party and that is not only tasty but also cheap and easy:

Ingredients for about 2-3 people

  • 2 packs of yum yum noodles (china instant noodles with spice), always take chicken flavor
  • 1/2 small Chinese cabbage
  • 1-2 peppers
  • 2 spring onions
  • balsamic
  • Oil (I have rapeseed oil there)
  • herb vinegar
  • Brown sugar
  • salt
  • 1 handful of nuts (but also goes without)


  1. Break the yum yum noodles a little smaller and pour boiling water over them and leave to stand.
  2. Spice the pasta with 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar, 3 tablespoons of herbal vinegar, 4 tablespoons brown sugar, 1/2 teaspoon salt and set aside.
  3. Cut Chinese cabbage, peppers and spring onions (while I like to let the Chinese cabbage grow a bit)
  4. Drain the pasta and mix everything together.
  5. If you prepare it the day before, the noodles pull through nicely ... but then I snip the Chinese cabbage and the spring onions just before serving ...
