This is a spicy Thai salad based on glass noodles with chicken and prawns. Great during summer as an entre or with other dishes buffet style. Pork can be substituted for the chicken.
NOTE: Crisp fried shallots and pickled garlic are available in Asian grocery stores. If shallots are unavailable they are easy to make. Just fry some sliced shallots in a little oil until browned and crisp.
