Tossed Salad With A Difference

Total Time

I can eat the noodles all by themselves. I serve this with Asian dishes because I always want something other than just rice. You can make the dressing the day before and heat the noodles while you finish your main dish.

This just didn't do it for us. The salad dressing does not have an oriental taste and we thought the noodles were overpowering for the mildness of the dressing. Seeing the prior two 5 star reviews only goes to prove that we all have different tastes.

This was a great salad recipe. The dressing was very very tasty. I made it up the night before my dinner party and let the flavours mingle. The noodles and the water chestnuts were a nice difference.I didn;t change a thing and I am glad I didn't. I'm always looking for new salads and dressings keep them coming TPubmgjbd

Thanks so much for this "tossed salad recipe with a difference"! As I believe in making life as simple as possible, I substituted Ranch Dressing for this dressing. Instead of tearing the lettuce I cut it up in 1" squares. Even this gives it a new twist. Everyone loved it. Thanks again!Dottie5
