I really liked this salad! I didn't soak the noodles at all--they soften up in the marinade enough and wanted it crunchy. Used oriental ramen instead of chicken and since I like lots of dressing, added the mandrin juice to the mix. If you double this recipe, make sure you have a seriously huge bowl. I made this for an office dinner and while I loved it, no one really said much, so.......4 stars. As a leftover, the noodles and cashews get soft but it's still very good. I'm planning on making this for Thanksgiving for my more sweet-toothed family. And can anyone tell my why you must use white wine vinegar instead of plain 'ol white vinegar? If anyone is interested, a single recipe of this salad cost about $7.00.

I made this for my family. I used sliced almonds instead of cashews and didn't soak the noodles, everyone raved.
