    Susiecat too's Note:

    "Glass" or "cellophane" noodles are made from mung beans, and are so called because they become almost transparent when cooked. The Chinese name for them is "sai fun" and you can find them in an Asian specialty grocery, or in the international section of a well-stocked traditional grocery. Most of the time spent here is passive, for soaking and then refrigerating the noodles.

      The dressing for these noodles was wonderful on its own. I did not like the consistency of the noodles after cooking them. I think that the recipe could be quickened very easily by following the soaking directions on the package and then topping with the dressing with no cooking at all. *Made for ZWT*
