    This tasty salad recipe was obtained from Carolyn, she says she uses Japanese noodles, which she purchesases from the oriental section of Albertson's, in place of the Chinese noodles called for in the recipe. She also adds some vidalia onion to the salad, cooked in the microwave for six minutes and sliced.
