Cold Udon Noodle Salad with Chicken, Cucumber and Pea Pods

This is a delicious summer salad with a light, fresh taste.  Start by grilling 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts. Alternatively, you could use shredded left-over chicken.  Put it in the refrigerator to cool and then slice into bite-size pieces.  Blanch 2C of pea pods so they are crisp/tender.  Dice 1/2 of a cucumber into bite sized pieces.  Cook the noodles according to package directions ( your favorite pasta will work if you can't find Udon noodles).  Make a vinaigrette dressing by mixing 1/4C olive oil with 3T fresh lime juice.  Add salt and pepper to taste and 1T each of freshly chopped mint and basil.  Assemble the salad and toss with the dressing.  Perfect for a warm summer evening
