I don't remember where I got this, but I think it's a great cold noodle salad. I've taken it to potlucks and it's been a hit. Hope you enjoy!

Top Review by Ilysse

We really enjoyed this. Mike needed a few bites to get into the groove but once he did we decided this is a keeper. I didn't have the same problem as the other reviewer with the sauce. I actually thought it was the perfect amount. But I did make a few changes. I didn't use bell pepper, cilantro, or the red pepper flakes cause I knew Mike wouldn't be happy with it and I added green onion and very glad I did. We decided next time to try more veggies in it maybe some snow peas, bean sprouts, cabbage...whatever is on sale and looks good :-)Avacodo might also be nice. Mike also thought some pork, chicken or shrimp would be good in it; next time. Thanks for a great recipe.
