READY IN: 17mins
Recipe by Kozmic Blues

This tangy, Asian-style noodle salad is great for summertime, for a quick lunch, or light supper. This dish is both egg free and dairy free, and it's from Vegetarian Times.

This was very good. The only thing I changed was using an Asian chili sauce instead of the paste since I didn't have any. And I only used 2 tsp. and it was plenty hot. I also expected it to be more lemony. I added a bit more lemon juice and liked the results. Thanks for sharing!! :O)
