Delicious! Just like the local Thai restaurant.
This was a nice salad but I did not care for the dressing- fish sauce overpowered. I used shredded chicken breast and almonds rather than peanuts. I will make this again using less fish sauce- maybe replacing some of it with rice vinegar. Thanks for sharing this PanNan!
I made this recipe for 2 servings and really wanted to give it a five star review but the noodles and the sauce were not winners for me. Used shredded chicken breast, cole slaw blend, and parsley instead of cilantro. The chili flakes I added a pinch or two and used a jalapeno that I cut the seeds out of for the chilies in the sauce. The noodles didnt really have a flavor and like the other reviews I didnt care for the strong fish sauce taste. If I make this again I would sub angel hair pasta and find another recipe for the sauce or buy a dressing from the store. Made and reviewed for the Culinary Quest 2016 - Thailand/Indonesia.
This salad was good, but I agree that the fish sauce was just too overpowering. I also used shredded chicken and peanuts. My husband and I ate this, but my kids wouldn't. I will try again at a later time with a different dressing using less fish sauce. Made for the Asian round of ZWT9 for team Tasty Testers.
the fish sauce was too strong, i think that it should be decreased to 7 tablespoons....plus, that's a lot of sodium in an otherwise healthy salad.
