A great salad with lots of wonderful taste and texture sensations! The whole family enjoyed this. I used a vegetable peeler to 'ribbon' the carrot and cucumber, and then chopped them into smaller pieces with a sharp knife. It took several bowls to find one that could accommodate all the ingredients. Was also hard to toss in the vermicelli. This would have been easier if I'd broken up the vermicelli before cooking it, or rinsed and chopped it after the cooking and draining. That said it is a brilliant salad. My pics show before and after adding the dressing -- and a change of bowls. Thanks for a great variation on boring old coleslaw.
