Notes

Cooking Noodles - Glass noodles will cook in just a minute in boiling water. Remove from heat and drain. Refresh several times in cold water until the noodles are cold and don’t stick together. Keep in cool water until ready to mix. Drain and squeeze all of the water before using noodles.
Draining Zucchini - It is important to squeeze the liquid out of the julienned zucchini to avoid it becoming gluggy.
