NOODLE SALAD(with INDOMIE)

Instant noodles are a popular go-to food for people who aren’t necessarily crazy about cooking. Just boil them for 2 minutes, season and the meal is done. But there are so many ways of preparing noodles other than just boiling them. 
You can make salads out them. Stir fry them with vegetables or meat or eggs. Make lasagna. There’s a whole lot to do with them. And in the coming days I’llbe sharing a number of simple, yummy noodle recipes. 

This salad is quite light and therefore makes a great starter or Sidedish. The ingredients used can be easily found in supermarkets.

​INGREDIENTS 

•Indomie noodles

•1/4 Small Red cabbage, chopped 

•3 bell peppers(red,yellow,green),chopped
