Marinated Cucumber and Red Bell Pepper Salad Preparation
Drop the noodles into boiling water until done (length of time depends on type; read the label). Drain. Toss all ingredients together and marinate for at least 1 hour. Serve on a bed of lettuce. Other tips: I used 3.5 oz of noodles, and less dressing. The chili makes it hot so if you dont like spicy, it would be fine to leave it out. You may want to break the noodles a little before cooking (but not too much). I made the mistake of not breaking them and ended up having to cut them a little in order to get my ingredients to combine properly. This salad is even better the next day. I imagine it travels nicely because it isnt too soupy. For those who care: 1C: 84 Cal. .5 g total fat trace saturated fat 0 mg cholesterol From Ornishs "Program for Reversing Heart Disease".
