Great flavors! I used Japanese vinegar instead of wine vinegar- it's milder in flavor. Also, I toasted the crumbled noodles, almonds and sesame seeds together in a skillet on the stove until it was lightly browned - made it crispier. Also, added some slivered red bell peppers for color. Beautiful, colorful salad with a tart, sweet flavor.

This was another of my holiday salads and one everyone enjoyed. I made as posted using chicken flavored oriental noodles. The toasted almonds and sesame seeds made for great flavor and the crunch I love in a salad. It's already on the pot luck list! Thank you.
