For a refreshing side-dish salad, toss snow peas, water chestnuts, and sweet pepper with a sesame and soy dressing.
Bring a medium-size pot of water to a boil. Lightly salt and add snow peas. Cook for 3 minutes and drain.
In a medium-size bowl, combine snow peas, red pepper, water chestnuts and scallions. Allow to cool.
In a small bowl, whisk soy sauce, hoisin, sesame oil and vinegar. Toss with vegetables.
Serve at room temperature or cold. Garnish with noodles and scallions just before serving.
