This vibrant, fresh, herb-packed salad makes a great light dinner. The skinny shredded egg "pancakes" add just the right amount of protein to make it a satisfying meal. If you prefer a little more heat, use a whole bird's-eye pepper instead of half.

Ingredients

  • 4 eggs
  • 4 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • 225 g green beans trimmed
  • half English cucumber halved lengthwise and cut in strips
  • 6 cups lightly packed mixed baby greens
  • 1/2 cup torn fresh mint leaves
  • 1/2 cup torn fresh basil leaf
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro leaves
Dressing:
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon fish sauce
  • pinch each salt and granulated sugar
  • 1 shallots thinly sliced
  • half Thai bird's-eye pepper seeded and thinly sliced
  • half garlic clove grated or pressed

Method

Beat one of the eggs. In large nonstick skillet, heat 1 tsp of the oil over medium-high heat; pour beaten egg into pan, swirling to coat bottom. Cook until set, about 1 minute. Transfer to plate; roll up and set aside. Repeat with remaining eggs and oil to make four pancakes total. Thinly slice rolls crosswise.

Dressing: In large bowl, whisk together vegetable oil, lime juice, sesame oil, fish sauce, salt, sugar, shallot, Thai pepper and garlic; set aside.

Meanwhile, in small saucepan of boiling lightly salted water, cook green beans until tender-crisp, about 3 minutes. Drain and chill in cold water; drain and pat dry.

Add beans and cucumber to dressing; toss to coat. Add mixed greens, mint, basil and cilantro; toss to coat. Serve eggs on top or stirred into salad.
