Andrew Mackenzie uses leftover roast beef to make a wonderfully healthy Thai-style salad - perfect for a light lunch or simple supper. If you like things spicy, try adding a little bit of fresh chilli as a garnish.

To start the salad, cook the noodles according to packet instructions and set aside
Cut the Chinese leaf into thin strips and place into a large salad bowl. Cut the tomatoes into wedges and add to the bowl
Cut the cucumber in half and remove the seeds with a teaspoon. Cut into 8cm long strips and mix into the salad
De-seed the red pepper and finely dice. Slice the spring onions, add to the bowl with the pepper and cooked noodles, mixing to combine
For the dressing, place the sugar in a bowl. Add the lime juice and stir until the sugar dissolves, then add the soy sauce
Room for a little one
Hand the reins over to your little helpers for this step – have them add the dressing ingredients to a bowl and let them stir away
Fry the strips of beef in a hot pan with the oil for a few seconds until warmed through then drain on kitchen paper
Dress the salad with the dressing and divide into bowls. Lay the strips of beef on top and garnish with torn mint and coriander. Serve immediately
