Asian Noodle Salad from Cooking and Cooking
Yield: Serves 6

In a cooking pot, bring 1 1/2 cups water to a boil. Add the noodles and cook uncovered for 3 minutes. Drain off the water in a strainer and set aside (or cook the noodles according to the package directions, drain and set aside).

In a large bowl, toss together lettuce, cooked noodles, bell pepper, bean sprouts, green onion, cilantro and spinach.

For dressing, mix olive oil, lemon juice, soy sauce, garlic, ginger, hot sauce and sugar. Taste and adjust seasonings. Gradually toss enough of the dressing with noodle salad to coat (add the sauce just before serving).
