Super tasty sesame noodle salad with loads of awesome veggies. It is best if you make it the day before, but can also be made fresh if needed. This recipe serves about 6 main course servings or 12 side servings. This is a versatile recipe, and you can experiment with substituting other vegetables or even adding cooked meat. 3 T chili sauce is about a "medium-hot" spiciness. If you love heat, add a bit more, or if you are cooking for children or other people with less taste for heat, use a bit less.
