"Lots of flavor and super easy to make. The only change I made was to add a tiny amount of sesame seed oil. Definitely a salad I will make again. I served it alongside salmon and it was a perfect complement."

"My mom has been making this recipe for years, and it's always a favorite at family gatherings or potlucks. I also toast the almonds and add a splash of sesame oil."

"Very good. I added some extra cole slaw mix and a red and a yellow bell pepper, and there was still plenty of dressing. I also substituted sunflower seeds for the nuts because I had them on hand. Be careful not to make the salad too far in advance because the noodles will loose their crunch."
