Cambodian Rice Noodle Salad

Cambodian Neorm Masour​

In this light salad, noodles are paired with healthy raw vegetables in a tangy lemon sauce. It's seasoned with Kampot pepper, which has a floral note and is considered the finest pepper in the world. Grown in the mineral-rich mountains of the Kampot region, the taste of black Kampot pepper unveils hints of flower, eucalyptus, and mint. “It’s got a floral dimension that’s really something special,” said Anthony Bourdain.
