The secret of a good Pad Thai is to make a sauce that has a good balance of sweetness and sourness. Here I have combined lime juice, tamarind and rice malt syrup to make that delicious contrast between sweet and sour. This dish is perfect for a work packed lunch, take the dressing in a separate pot and pour over the noodle salad just before eating.
