As suggested by other reviewers I halved the soy sauce. I now wonder if it was too little I think I'll add a tad more next time. There will be a next time as this is a different side dish and one that I'm happy I found. Thanks Outliercook! Read More

This recipe sounded delicious to me but when I made it...too salty tasting--too much soy sauce! The soy sauce covered the taste of cilantro and avocado completely-- which is what made it sound so good to me. Read More

I really like this recipe! I love the combined sweet and salty taste...however I agree with the previous reviewer on the point of the recipe calling for too much soy sauce. I only added half of what the recipe said to use and it came out great. Read More

I followed others recommendation and halved the amount of soy sauce and I also doubled the amount of imitation crab meat (because that's how much I bought and didn't want to waste it). It tasted wonderful and the dressing seemed just right. Any more soy sauce and I think it would have been too much. I will definitely make this again. Read More

These noodles are so simple to make and sooo yummy! I used 1/2 cup soy sauce and found it sufficiently savoury and added another tablespoon of sesame seeds. Didn't have any baby salad greens added some boiled chopped carrots for colour. And the recipe does improve with chilling. Thank you OutlinerCook for sharing! I will definitely be making this again!

This is my first time reviewing recipes after years using this site....I did take other reviewers suggestions of cutting the soy in half...and I left out cilantro because it's not a flavor I like personally...even before the mixture cooled it tasted AMAZING! I am definitely going to make this again! Worked well with whole wheat pasta also. Read More

Delicious! yumm yumm yumm! At first I followed the advise of others and started with only 1/2 cup of soy sauce thinking I could add more if necessary. I did end up using the whole cup of soy sauce and did not find it too salty. This may have to do with the brand of soy sauce you use? Not sure I use kikkoman only. I did make one change as I forgot to buy sesame seeds. I substituted a scant teaspoon of sesame oil for them and this was fantastic. I will definitely make it again. Read More

I didn't care for this noodle salad I made it last night and I have been trying to think all day exactly what it is that didn't work for me and I can't even say. The mix of everything together just did not work:( Read More
