I have looked for a recipe similar to Earl's Thai noodle salad and this is the closest I have came. I made a few changes but we loved this recipe, because I made it for dinner used lots of pork tender,marinated in the sauce and I used fresh Thai peppers I used one pepper to marinate the meat,you can adjust how hot you want by how many pepper and how long the meat is marinated, the longer you marinate the meat the better the flavor (prepare meat the day before), we are meat eaters so I prepared a generous amount of meat for each serving,grilling the meat and than I used the wok,added a bit of oil to cook the match stick vegetables such as yellow,red, orange peppers and carrots,sugar peas and zucchini for a couple of minutes, then added the Chinese noodles cooking them a couple more minutes, we like are noodles crispy, let it cool off a bit and then added chunks of English cucumber,baby corn and grape tomatoes and added the greens & red onions then mixed in the dressing,tossing the salad then sprinkled the cashews on top and then added the warm grilled meat and drizzled the left over dressing over everything. I had no mango at the time, would like to try next time maybe mango & papaya or chicken and I usually don't like to use pre-made sauce because they contain so much sodium, so next time I will try a teryaki sauce with less sodium. I like to make this type of salad because you can add vegetables or fruit and the hot peppers to your family liking. I don't like to add to many hot peppers(Thai peppers) to marinate the meat but I like the spicy,sweet,sour dressing, it's a nice touch with vegetables and fruit. Preparing the dressing the day before and slicing the meat to marinate made things easy. The next day I chopped all vegetables then it took very little time to cook. I love the spicy,crispy salad, the name of the salad somehow doesn't suit, my self it should be listed as SPICY & CRISPY THAI NOODLE SALAD
