  1. Looks wonderful! But there's no mention of the noodles shown in the picture. What kind are they and how are they prepared? Thanks!

  2. Hi Anonymous - there are no noodles in the recipe... although you can toss the salad with rice noodles or steamed rice if you'd like. If you want to eat the salad with rice noodles, prepare rice noodles as directed on the package, such as those used for pad thai (pad thai rice noodles). For rice, prepare the rice as directed on the package.
