Inspired by the classic Thai dish pad thai, this noodle salad is full of flavor and leaves plenty of room for creativity. Add some Asian flair to your potluck or weeknight menu with the sweet, sour, salty and spicy flavors that make up this tasty recipe. Top with grilled pork or pulled rotisserie chicken for a main dish; find fish sauce in the Asian foods section of the supermarket.
