Oriental Cold Noodle Salad

Christiana Heins

"A zesty treat--Goes great with bbq'd chicken and a beer. This dish has more of a Thai flavor. For a Japanese flavor, omit the pepper flakes, peanuts, and cilantro. Add 1/4 c. of toasted sesame seeds. If you're feeling adventurous mix in 1/2 c. of shredded dried seaweed (nori) just before serving. You can substitute ramen noodles for soba."

I give this 5 stars for the dressing alone. I have been trying to figure out how to duplicate the dressing which I've had on a similar salad and this hit the spot. That said, you should know tha...

I used 1 lb. angel hair pasta because I didn't have the soba noodles, and they worked very well. I omitted the cilantro. Found the recipe to be tasty, but the vinegar taste was strong. If I made...

The dressing for this salad is delicious. I add about a tablespoon of Mirin to the dressing which cuts down on the dryness as well. I like more vegetables in this salad. My favorite it to add ju...

This was fantastic! We loved it! Didn't change a thing.

This recipe was great! Definately serve after letting the salad sit in the 'fridge overnight--more flavor! I added mandarin oranges, crushed pineapple, and baby corn to the salad, too.

THis was a hit with 6 children and adults alike! I left out the lime zest (didn't seem to be missing). Used the juice of a whole small lime. The peanuts were great for crunch. Also left out ...
