  1. After the noodles have cooled, give them a quick rinse and make sure to drain really well. Transfer the noodles to a large mixing bowl. Add in the remaining salad ingredients.

  2. Add all ingredients for your dressing to a medium jar and use a fork to whisk and combine. Season to taste to adjust for desired sweetness and tartness. Pour the dressing over the salad and toss to coat. Let sit in the fridge for at least 30 minutes before serving chilled.
