  • 1 Cup coconut cream, boiled and cooled
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 2 Tablespoons sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons garlic oil, see note
Garnishes:

  • 2 teaspoons red pepper flakes
  • 2 Tablespoons cilantro leaves, chopped
  • 2 Tablespoons ginger, chopped
  • 2 Tablespoons red onion, sliced thin
Instructions
  1. Boil the noodles for 2 or 3 minutes in water until "al dente". Plunge into cold water and then drain.
  2. Spread noodles on a large platter and sprinkle with the chopped pineapple.
  3. Mix the SAUCE ingredients and pour over the noodles.
  4. Sprinkle with the green onion, red pepper flakes, cilantro, red onion and ginger. Toss well to mix ingredients thoroughly.

Notes
Substitute pineapple tidbits for fresh if you want. You will need a large can. Garlic oil may be made by frying chopped garlic in oil until golden and softened but not browned or crisped. Use, as a guideline, 1 part garlic to 4 parts oil. Do not strain the garlic.
