This is a delicious noodle salad. I couldn't stop eating it - it is sooo addictive. I had tasted a nudelsalat at a dinner party in Germany and never got the recipe, so Clara very kindly helped me out by sharing her recipe. This is even better than the one I had tasted. I recommend lining a large serving bowl with bright leafy greens, then filling with this salad to make it look nice on the table. Simply delicious!
