Ponzu is a soy and citrus sauce popular in Japanese cooking. Use it to dress up simple vegetable and rice dishes, or use it as a sauce for stir-fries. Make this dish in the spring when snow peas and cilantro are in season. Brown rice noodles can be found in most grocery stores, natural food stores, or online.

Drain and rinse the mixture until cooled, and place it in a large bowl.

Add the green onions, cilantro, ponzu sauce, and crushed red pepper flakes, if using.

Mix well before serving.
