Bean Thread Salad

Top Review by batya

this was really easy to make and tasty...but i ended up putting a dash of soy sauce (literally a dash..too much would ruin it) and i used a bit more sesame oil...and my fish sauce was a mixture that i bought in the store so its probably all off anyway! i also used chopped cilantro and basil and mint which was a delicious addition. ...but it was nice and easy
