Delicious! I just made this and it was FANTASTIC! So refreshing and light. I highly recommend this recipe! I did not have sesame seed, so I drizzled a tiny bit of sesame oil over the noodles.

I have used this recipe 3 times over the last year and have never poted a comment. I just couldn't bear to see no comments! Whenever I make this recipe I always make sure to print off some copies as it is always requested! MUST Try it!
