Bring a large pot of water to boil. Combine the first 7 ingredients in a salad bowl. Add the noodles to the boiling water and cook until tender, about 1 minute. Drain well, cool in ice-cold water, and drain well again. Place the noodles and remaining ingredients in the salad bowl and toss to combine.
Recipe Options: Instead of shrimp, use crab meat in this salad, or use a mix of the two. Instead of rice noodles, use Asian-style egg noodles in this recipe. Instead of roasted cashews, use an equal amount of roasted, unsalted peanuts, coarsely chopped.
