Thai Beef & Noodle Salad

Recipe Taken From:
Women's Day Magazine

INGREDIENTS:
• 1 package (3 3/4 oz) cellophane noodles
• 4 cups boiling water
• 3/4 cup halved snow peas
• 1/4 cup white vinegar
• 2 Tbsp sugar
• 1 tsp grated ginger
• 1/2 tsp kosher salt
• 8 oz thickly sliced deli roast beef, cut in strips
• 1 1/2 cups sliced seedless cucumber
• 1/2 cup sliced fresh mint
• 1/4 cup chopped peanuts (optional)

PREPARATION:
1. Put noodles and snow peas in a large bowl. Pour in boiling water and let sit 10 minutes until noodles are tender. Drain; rinse under cold running water and drain again. Shake colander to remove excess water, then return to bowl.

2. Combine vinegar, sugar, ginger and salt in a jar; shake to dissolve sugar.

3. Pour dressing over noodles and snow peas; add remaining ingredients (except peanuts) and toss to coat. Sprinkle each serving with peanuts if desired.

Notes & Tips:
I had to add a little soy sauce to this recipe, because I found it a little bland. I also decided against the mint, and used a little of the leftover pesto. I also still can't find good snow peas in Kansas so I used fresh green beans.
