This simple Noodle salad is made with Bean Noodles and is dressed with a wonderful sweet, sour & salty dressing and topped with Shrimp, Veggies, & Herbs. I love using bean noodles, this is typically made from mung bean and is similar to rice noodles but has a transparent texture when cooked and is hence also called glass noodles. You can eat it hot or cold and it’s very versatile.

I also like to use in it stir fry recipes here and in fillings for fresh spring rolls here
