Wasabi, also known as Japanese horseradish, is a paste similar to hot mustard. Extremely popular with sushi, wasabi is also an excellent base for salad dressings. This dish is a refreshing and spicy salad that uses glass noodles as a base. You can eat it at room temperature.

To prepare it, cook the green beans first. Then, prepare the wasabi dressing. Cook the glass noodles, toast the pistachios and mix it all together in a large salad bowl. Serve with fresh lime slices and watercress.
