This Thai style salad is fancy enough for a dinner party and not hard to make. It's not only a healthy alternative, but tastes fantastic.
This salad is a real crowd pleaser. The first time I made this salad, I didn't read that it served 20 until I was 3/4 through preparation. I felt pretty silly makeing the whole recipe for 8 people, but I am glad I did because there was hardly any left! The sauce is fantasitic, and versitile - it would make a great dipping sauce for chicken, shrimp or pork. - 17 Jun 2007 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Makes a ton!! Although it states this is a "quick" recipe, it is time-consuming: make dressing, cook noodles, chop or shred lots of vegetables. Not as flavorful as other Thai noodle salads I've eaten as the sauce was on the mild side. It was o.k., but it didn't receive much response from my guests, and only 1 (out of 11) asked for the recipe. - 13 Jun 2001 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I substituted Thai rice noodles for the pasta. A little cilantro goes a long way. The recipe divides easily. Tasty sauce. My preteen daughter helped with all of the "chopping" and enjoyed the dish, especially the sauce. - 27 Apr 2001 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
