    This is quite delicious even though I reduced the sugar by 75%. The sauce is quite unique.  -  24 Apr 2017


    Tasty, we could have soaked the noodles a little longer. We only had the flat rice noodles that look like fettuccine noodles at our store so I am guessing they need to be soaked longer. The only change we made was we added carrots that were cut like matchsticks. I also gave generous portions of vegetables to this salad.  -  22 Aug 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I just made it and it's awesome. Great flavor. I followed the directions exactly for the dressing. I doubled the veggies. I'm serving it with sliced chicken.  -  22 Aug 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
