I only had regular tofu handy so I sauteed it in some teriyaki sauce which added some good flavor. I poured the entire vinegar dressing mixture on top of the tofu/veggies/noodles and I thought the flavor was a bit strong. I think next time I would put what I want on a plate and then just spoon a little of the dressing on top. Overall, I thought this was a good recipe that I will definitely make again...and the best is how quickly it took to make!

Very good recipe. I Do not usually like Cucumber so I was a bit wary when i first tried this. I have since made it twice more. The flavors are all excellent and blend perfectly. The dressing really does a lot to pull the dish together. I tried making the dish with Soba noodles, but they do not soak up the dressing as well as Udon noodles. Also Shaving the carrot helps a lot. when dealing with uncooked carrots I often find the rigidity of carrots can be off-putting, especially when paired with softer ingredients like Tofu, Noodles, and Cucumber. Shaving the carrots does a lot to mitigate this.
