Directions:
In a large pot, bring 3 quarts water to a boil; add noodles and boil as package directs, about 2 minutes.

Drain, rinse with cold water, let cool in colander.

Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine oil, vinegar, lime juice and peel, soy sauce, red pepper flakes or chili sauce, sugar and garlic. Mix until sugar is dissolved. Toss in carrots, peanuts and cilantro.

Cut through noodles to make manageable lengths. Toss noodles in a bowl with the other ingredients. Chill salad for at least an hour to let flavors mingle. Toss again just before serving. If it seems a little dry, add a little more soy sauce and vinegar.
Serve cold or at room temperature.
