    PASTA CAN BE USED INSTEAD OF NOODLES IN THIS PARTICULAR SALAD, AS IT HAS NO SOY SAUCE. IT WILL TASTE JUST AS DELICIOUS.

    If Balsamic Vinegar is not handy, you can substitute it in this way:-

    Mix (1 Tbsp) of red wine vinegar or apple cider vinegar and sugar (according to your taste), and heat on a very low flame or keep the pan slightly above the flame, whisking it continuously till the sugar dissolves and till the mix is slightly thicker.
