Prepare the vegetables.
Cook the noodles according to the instructions on the packet. Drain them once they are cooked. While the noodles are cooking you can make the dressing.
Warm the olive oil in a small saucepan.
Add the garlic and fry until it starts to brown and go crunchy.
Take off the heat and add the lime juice, soy sauce, brown sugar and chillies (stand back a bit in case the oil spits!).
Stir to combine.
Mix together the noodles and chopped vegetables and put in a serving bowl on a bed of mixed leaves (optional).
Pour the dressing over the salad.
Warm the cashew nuts in a dry frying pan and shake them around until they start to brown. Sprinkle over the salad and serve.
