Thai cuisine has such wonderfully intense flavors, but the dishes can be heavy and time-consuming. My answer is a refreshing salad with mango, gingerroot and a pop of jalapeno. —Melanie Stevenson, Reading, Pennsylvania

"What a great combination of flavors! I used pre-cooked, packaged udon and left the cilantro out (not really a fan). My grocery store didn't have fresh mango, so I substituted Mandarin orange slices. The result was delicious, and a definite hit at the dinner table. The noodles really take the flavor of the dressing well. And it's so easy to prepare, I can see this salad making frequent appearances in my house!"
