My comments:

I had lots of peanut sauce leftover from the Vietnamese Spring Wrap and I remember once upon a time, I ate a cold noodle served with peanut sauce that I really liked. I couldn't remember exactly what was in the dish, so I sort of made up my own recipe and it turned out pretty well.

I selected these particular vegetables because that was what I had in my fridge but you can literally use any vegetables you want. I think some colour peppers, cucumbers and mung bean sprouts (if you are not afraid of salmonella) would go nicely with the peanut sauce. I also had some leftover grilled chicken in the fridge that I had to eat. So I sliced them up and threw them in with the noodles; the chicken added a very nice flavour to this noodle dish.
