Vietnamese Noodle Salad

Vietnamese Noodle Salad

Based on the traditional Vietnamese dish called bun, cool noodle salads translate into perfect summer suppers. Each bite is a contrast of beguiling tastes and textures: cold, tender noodles, warm tofu, crisp radishes, crunchy peanuts, fragrant fresh herbs, and a tangy dressing that packs a little heat. If tofu is not your thing, experiment with cooking up chicken breast or shrimp instead.
