1Toss together all ingredients for the salad. Be sure to break up the dry noodles into small pieces. The almonds* should be lightly toasted. We like the crunch of the noodles and the nuts, so generally use more almonds* and sunflower seeds* than this reciep calls for.
2For the Dressing:
Mix together the ingredients. If you are serving the salad immediately, pour over the mixture. If serving later, mix ingredients in a jar with a lid and refrigerate salad and dressing. Just before serving, shake dressing well, pour over salad and toss.
