When I first saw the title of this recipe, "Sour Noodle Salad," I thought it sounded really weird. After I read the ingredients, I became intrigued. But when this dish was chosen as the winner in the salad category at a local holiday recipe contest, I took a taste and understood why it was a winner.
The pasta was cooked perfectly al a dente' and it combined with the dressing to provide a cool, bright taste in your mouth. One taste was not enough. Many thanks to Mrs. Schwartz to sharing one of her best recipes.
