Do not let the noodles sit in the sauce toss the complete salad together just before serving --- to save some time the dressing and/or the pasta can be prepared a day in advance --- you can add in your favorite veggies to the salad if desired, the amounts may be doubled to yield 6-8 -- this is very good!

I am literally cooking a double batch right now and I only get to eat half! This has become our requested dish for every party we attend. I add shredded carrots and thinly cut seedless cucumber. The sauce is what really makes it though. Great recipe.

I have tried several peanut butter noodle recipes, and this is the one I like best! We omit the bell pepper because DH doesn't like it, but they are still extremely tasty. Love this as a side dish to my Asian Flank Steak. Thanks!

I made this for DD to take in her lunches and she loves it. I omitted the green onions but otherwise followed the recipe using vermicelli noodles. Thanks for posting.
