This is a delicious and flavourful salad that makes a delicious summertime lunch or light supper. Udon noodles can be purchased at most larger supermarkets.
FANTASTIC!!! Excellent for a warm summer night when you want to cool down. I was skeptical about mixing milk directly with vinegar in the dressing because I thought the milk would curdle, so I combined all the dressing ingredients *except* the milk, stirred it well, then added the milk. The dressing tasted just like what I've had at good Thai restaurants!!! I made one addition to the noodle mixture: fresh cilantro. The results were so fresh and yummy! I'm glad the recipe made a lot of noodle salad because I'm looking forward to having it for lunch tomorrow. - 16 Jul 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I substituted linguine for the udon noodles, and it turned out well. I feel the texture of the bean sprouts detracted from the salad, so next time I'll leave those out. Otherwise, a very good, flavorful salad. - 10 Jun 2001 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I was a little disappointed. I would completely change all the veggies, no cucumbers, and use extremely thin noodles. Using speghetti just is too heavy. The dressing isn't bad, but it lacks something. I will try to modify this to get it to work. I will let you know when I figure out the missing ingredients. - 14 Mar 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
