Delish but hard to track down some ingredits

I live in a major metropolitan area.  I went to 3 grocery stores-national chain, Trader Joe's and Whole Foods --& couldn't find the specific noodles called for in the recipe or napa cabbage.  I used and cooked basic Chinese curly noodles and put them in the salad cooked.  I substituted Romaine for the napa cabbage.  I also couldn't find Chinese mustard but found a 60-second recipe for it online.  It was quite good & the dressing made it smell just like the restaurant version. 

Excellent salad

I've taken this salad to many parties/BBQs over the years and it is always a big hit.  I use mandarin oranges as a rule.

This was delish! I really enjoyed the flavors but my picky fiance did not. I'll be making it next time he's out of town, but I think i'll find a substitute for the noodles because those were too hard.

Easy and tasty. A great weeknight meal. I added a little extra rice vinegar and mustard powder to the dressing for some zing, otherwise made as presented.

This was pretty good. The noodles seemed a bit much...I think next time I'll do more almonds and less noodles. Flavor was good, and it was quick and easy which is always a plus (and I just boiled some thin cut chicken breasts in water seasoned with salt, rice wine vinegar and wine.....and the meal still came together fast). Also, I didn't want to buy two whole heads of cabbage, and they didn't have any pre-shredded, so I just did finely chopped Romaine and it turned out great.....boiled down, I will make again, just with some changes to the noodle/almond ratio. Addition: Since I only did two servings from the first batch, we had enought for another meal tonight.....scrapped the lettuce, boiled the already toasted noodles, tossed that with the chicken and leftover dressing and added green onions and pepper flakes.....Defintely would make THAT again!

salad is alright, nothing special. dressing was so so, i found the dried mustard a little too strong and slightly off flavored, wasabi powder may be better.
