      Title: Marinated cucumber and red bell pepper salad
 Categories: Digest, Ornish
      Yield: 4 Servings
 
      2 oz Dry cellophane or bean
           Thread noodles
      2 c  Peeled, seeded, and sliced
           Cucumbers
      2 c  Thinly sliced red bell
           Peppers (I chopped them into
           Chunks )
      1 c  No-oil Italian dressing or
           Vinaigrette (I used less
           Than 1C -- about 3/4)
      1 T  Freshly minced basil
      1 T  Freshly miced cilantro
    1/8 t  Red hot chili flakes (I made
           My own from dried chilis)
           Lettuce
 
  Drop the noodles into boiling water until done (length of time
  depends on type; read the label). Drain. Toss all ingredients
  together and marinate for at least 1 hour. Serve on a bed of lettuce.
  
  Other tips:
  
  I used 3.5 oz of noodles, and less dressing. The chili makes it hot
  so if you don't like spicy, it would be fine to leave it out. You may
  want to break the noodles a little before cooking (but not too much).
  I made the mistake of not breaking them and ended up having to cut
  them a little in order to get my ingredients to combine properly.
  
  This salad is even better the next day. I imagine it travels nicely
  because it isn't too soupy.
