This dish was good. I wasn't really clear on if it was meant to be served hot or cold so I went with slightly warm. I sauteed the veggies a couple minutes ( since that wasn't mentioned either) and added shredded carrot and broccoli to make it a little more hearty and healthy.

I really liked this recipe. I changed it up a bit by adding 1 tablespoon lime juice and 1 tablespoon rice vinegar in place of the 2 tablespoons of rice-wine vinegar (which I didn't have), frying up 2 cloves of garlic until fragrant then adding the veggies in a little sesame oil and soy sauce and frying until tender and serving everything warm. It turned out very yummy but *very* spicy. I love spicy but this was a bit too much for even me. I would at least half the amount of crushed red pepper if you're not into very spicy food.
I added garlic and ginger paste to the dressing and it was delicious!
I'm quite picky when it comes to Asian cooking. I lived in Hawaii for years, and I suppose I have a biased palate. This did not live up to my expectations. It was good, but not delicious. We also cannot have anything with wheat, so I used rice noodles, like many Asian places do. The noodles cooked perfect, but I think the dish needed just a little something else. Not sure what cuz I'm not a professional chef. :)
