Peanut-Noodle Salad

    As other reviewers have said: TOO SALTY. To the point of being inedible.

    Way too much soy and vinegar. Reduce these dramatically, add some more peanut butter, and tons of cilantro and it is a decent pasta salad. We also added sugar snap peas for some green veggies and bean sprouts would be good too.

    *With modifications* Based on other reviews, I altered the sauce: halved the soy sauce, used about 2/3 of the vinegar, added fresh cilantro and more pb to taste, which also thickened the sauce. I used more carrots too. Definitely serve chilled; I just put the pasta in the fridge while I was prepping the sauce. Topped with toasted peanuts and a bit of sriracha to rave reviews!

    I used low sodium soy sauce and cut it to 1/4 cup. Definitely serve this chilled, and add a little siriacha if you like spice.

    Very good with a few revisions. I used Braggs Amino Acids (you can find it in the vinegar section of the supermarket) instead of soy sauce and cut it down to 1/2 cup. Used 3/4 cup coconut milk and added broccoli to the recipe. Also added about a tsp of ginger.

    Awesome with some modifications. NO extra salt, only 1/4 cup soy sauce and rice wine vinegar, a dash of siracha, one clove garlic, less noodles (about 8 oz) and added broccoli for more oomph. Really, really good. Served cold, excellent fast summer dinner.

    Thought it was decent, but only as a side dish; I tried to make it as an actual dish and ended up going out and buying fish to go with it. It went well together, with a pineapple and mango mahi mahi...the only thing is I felt there was too much vinegar. I would definitely down or omit the vinegar the next time. I think I might have used too much sauce for the amount of noodles I had; definitely don't over-coat the noodles. I think I would also use thicker noodles, even such as fettuccine, instead of using angel hair the next time.

    The proportions must be off -- even when I halved the soy sauce, the total effect was inedible.

    Sorry, way too salty. You could make alterations, but too many more good recipes out there to try. Probably will not make again.
