We had a delicious sesame noodle salad at a party last week. Does anyone know where I can get a recipe for it?
I think they said it had cilantro in it and a few other ingredients I don't remember. It was so good!
Sesame noodle salad
I've used this noodle salad recipe a few times. It's simple and tastes amazing. I also like to do a salad that is kind of along the same lines. Use alfredo noodles or lugini noodles, chicken, snap peas, with a lemon zest. You can use a light olive oil salt and pepper or Italian dressing.
Sesame Noodle Salad
1 pound whole-wheat spaghetti
1/2 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
2 tablespoons sesame oil
2 tablespoons canola oil
2 tablespoons rice-wine vinegar, or lime juice
1 1/2 teaspoons crushed red pepper
1 bunch scallions, sliced, divided
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro, divided (optional)
4 cups snow peas, trimmed and sliced on the bias
1 medium red bell pepper, thinly sliced
1/2 cup toasted sesame seeds
- Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Cook spaghetti until just tender, 9 to 11 minutes or according to package directions. Drain; rinse under cold water.
- Whisk soy sauce, sesame oil, canola oil, vinegar (or lime juice), crushed red pepper, 1/4 cup scallions and 2 tablespoons cilantro (if using). Add noodles, snow peas and bell pepper; toss to coat.
- To serve, mix in sesame seeds and garnish with the remaining scallions and cilantro.
