I believe the instructions regarding cellophane noodles (glass noodles, mung-bean noodles) need to be more explicit in this recipe for "Spicy Asian Cellophane Noodle Salad." There are different types of cellophane noodles which need to be prepared differently (bean-thread type vs. ribbon-pasta type). I soak my bean-thread type cellophane noodles in hot tap water for 30 minutes, drain well, and cut the threads into 2" strands before proceeding to make the salad (no cooking). Chef Jamie Oliver also does not cook bean-thread type cellophane noodles in his "Fresh Asian Noodle Salad." Perhaps any issues reviewers are having with this recipe are related to the type of bean-thread type cellophane noodles used. Thank you SUMMER530 for sharing your recipe.
