This is the kind of food that makes me happy. I had a moment today, which also made me happy. Long story short, I met a reader at a workshop. As in a real person who knows about and reads my blog. Best moment of the day. If you make this noodle salad, this could be the best moment of your day. High in flavor, low in fat. Who doesn’t like that?
