  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. In a small bowl, whisk together lime juice, rice vinegar, sugar, fish sauce, garlic and 1/4 tsp. salt.

  2. Add noodles to pot with boiling water, stir and cook until noodles are tender, 5 to 8 minutes or as package label directs. During last minute of cooking time, add snow peas to pot. Drain, rinse noodles and peas under cold water, drain again, and transfer to a large bowl.
