Tips:
Add extra red pepper or hot sauce to the dressing if you like more spice.

1/2 orange squeezed makes about 1/4 cup juice.

1 lime squeezed makes about 2 tbsp juice.

You can substitute soba noodles for rice noodles.

To add color, substitute a mix of red and green cabbage for savoy cabbage.

To save preparation time, substitute packaged coleslaw mix for savoy cabbage.
