Japanese Noodle and Cucumber Salad

READY IN: 20mins
Top Review by Parsley

I liked how simple and easy this was. I used the bean thread noodles, and chilled them in the soy sauce mixture for about 1 hours, tossing occasionally. The noodles were ok and went great with the cool crunchy cucumbers, but I think overall it needed more flavor. I think I'd add some hoisin or even some peanut butter and add some crushed red pepper as well. Thanx for sharing!
