I used Chinese Mie noodles, which were perfect for this. The sauce, as it was in the recipe, was missing something. I added ~1/2 tsp ancho chili powder, 1 Tbsp lime juice, and 1 tsp white pepper and then it was fine. It is also good heated. I served it with grilled, boneless, skinless chicken breast and thighs marinated in the Absolutely Ultimate Marinade from this site, which was a perfect combination.

Good flavor but the recipe as written is too dry. Next time I'll either halve the pasta or double the wet ingredients.

This tastes great for a quick, easy summer dish! Just adjust the noodles/sauce ratio a little like the other reviewers said. I didn't have some of the ingredients and substituted with angel hair pasta, paprika powder, and Miracle Whip, and ate it with some thinly sliced cucumber on the side. Very refreshing. Thanks for the recipe!
