Just found this in my new Food Network Magazine and it looks so good. We love shrimp, rice noodles and salads and putting them all together has got to be a winning combo. Just a reminder to be careful, Sriracha (which can be found in Asian markets) can be hot so unless you like that, it might be wise to start with less, maybe even 1/2 tsp and taste test before adding more. After making this as a light dinner on a hot garden working day I think I'd add some grated ginger to it for a little bite next time.

This was quite refreshing. I did follow the recipe except for adding some sliced green onions. On top I did sprinkle some toasted sesame seeds. I think next time I might cut the fish sauce and sugar down a little. Made for Zaar New Kids on the Block tag game 2010.
