Asian Orange Noodle Salad (Brown Bag Lunch of the Week)

Here is my dilemma every week, what can I make on Sunday, that I can take to work on Monday, that will keep until Wednesday (and hopefully Thursday), and that will not send me into an afternoon post-lunch coma? Not so easy is it?

Here is one of my creations that tastes great, keeps great, and is great for you!
