I make this salad once a week, and it's a hit with all my guests! I substitute balsamic vinegar for the red wine vinegar, and have found that 1/2 cup oil, 1/2 cup sugar, 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar, and 2 tsp soy sauce is enough for this 8-serving salad. Any more and the lettuce would be dripping! The dressing IS important for softening up the broccoli, however, so I let it sit for 15-20 minutes before serving. Toss the crunchy noodles and walnuts in right before serving so the noodles don't get too soggy. Like other reviewers, I had no problem cutting the butter down to 1-2 tbsp when frying the noodles (which should DEFINITELY be broken into tiny crumbles), and toasting the walnuts in the oven. I've also thrown the walnuts in raw and I've never had a complaint.
