This was OK. It was very fresh tasting, but it lacked something, not sure what. It was spicy and bland at the same time, if that makes any sense.
This is just wonderful for anyone who likes spicy southeast asian food. It's also so light and refreshing on a hot night. The only changes I made were to omit the garlic from the dressing (taste buds like it but stomach won't digest raw garlic). (Next time I might add some daikon radish too). I chilled the bean threads in the freezer for a few minutes in a pretty glass bowl and put them on the table like that, with the other ingredients on a big platter from which we helped ourselves. Served with the Hot and Sour Coconut Soup. CL This is really a treat!
