Noodle salad. It sounds like there will be dressing and other tasty stuff.

Cold noodles sounds like a Tupperware full of leftover plain pasta.

I think of them as two different things, with noodle salad being like your AFR Pad Thai Salad, heavy on the green leafy, while cold noodles are more solidly noodly, like cold sesame noodles or Dan Dan noodles. Is that wrong?

Both sound yummy.

Noodle salad sounds better to me. If you say "cold noodles" you seem to be implying that they were not supposed to be that way. But then, English is not my native language, so I don't know if that's perceived like that by native speakers.

cold noodles are obviously covered in peanut sauce, so they sound more appetizing than just about anything.

I feel like it matters what kind of noodles they are. I don't know why, it just does! Like zaru soba is not a salad, but a Vietnamese-style cold noodle dish could be.

Depends on the type of dish. Pasta with beans with veggies and such = noodle salad, zaru soba or other similar things = cold noodles. So in the right context, both sound appetizing. "Cold noodles" sounds fancier to me but I can understand what people mean about it sounding like leftovers.

This. Cold noodles makes me think of Asian-style dishes, which I love. Noodle salad is sometimes that gross mayo-covered stuff at salad bars.

Yep. Vietnamese bun = noodle salad, for instance.

Noodle salad makes me think of a salad with noodles in it. Cold noodles makes me think of noodles with a little something else in it. More noodles = the better so I voted for Cold Noodles.

Not sure if you're soliciting alternatives, but what about "chilled"? Chilled Noodle Salad sounds less ominous than "cold."

This vote is pretty close. Will this be the thing that finally, irrevocably divides the PPK?

Only if those cold noodles are coated in...bottled Italian dressing!

That's how I think of them, too. Anyway, I voted Cold Noodles because I like cold noodles and sometimes I don't want a salad with my noodles (because they're two different things for me).

Some of us have great stories, pretty stories that take place at lakes with boats and friends and noodle salad. Just no one in this car. But, a lot of people, that's their story. Good times, noodle salad.

I love cold noodles. It makes me think of noodles with sauce. Noodle salad? I would probably be more likely to say pasta salad.
