Asian Noodle Salad!

I found this recipe while checking out some different blogs. This one was listed on The Pioneer Woman Cooks– she has so many great things! I LOVED this salad but it makes way too much!!! Next time I will half it or at least serve it at a barbecue this summer where there will hopefully be many more people than just the 2 of us!
