  3. In a large mixing bowl, combine the cooked and cooled noodles, sugar peas, shredded zucchini, Thai basil leaves, quick-pickled cucumbers, sliced radishes, and shredded carrots. Toss gently to combine.

  4. In a separate pot, bring water to a boil and add the shrimp. Cook for 2-3 minutes until they turn opaque and are fully cooked. Drain and rinse under cold water to cool.

  5. Add the cooked shrimp to the noodle and vegetable mixture.

  6. In a small bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, lime juice, mirin, rice vinegar, fish sauce, and sesame oil until well combined. Pour the sauce over the noodle salad and toss gently to evenly coat everything.

  7. Serve the refreshing summer noodle salad with lime wedges on the side for an extra zesty kick.

Quick-Pickled Cucumbers:
