● Put the glass noodles in a bowl and cover with boiling water. Let it sit for about 10 minutes.
● Take the noodles from soaking water and add them to the pot of boiling water.  Let it sit in the water for a minute, then drain and rinse with cold water.  If it sticks, put it in the microwave for a couple of seconds and stir again. Cut into smaller pieces with your kitchen scissors. 
● Juice the limes into a small bowl and add the soy sauce, fish sauce, sesame oil, ginger.
● Set some peanuts and cilantro aside for garnish.  Combine all the ingredients
including the dressing in a bowl and mix well. You want the dressing to coat the noodles properly. Sprinkle with peanuts and cilantro and serve.
