Chilled Soba Noodle Salad

Ingredients

Noodle Salad

8 oz of soba noodles (1 package)
1 bunch of scallions
4 carrots
bunch of cilantro
handful of chopped peanuts for garnish

Peanut Sauce

1/4 of a cup of crunchy peanut butter
1/4 cup of rice vinegar
1 tablespoon of soy sauce
2-4 teaspoons of garlic chile sauce ( sriracha or sambal )

Method

In a large pot bring salted water to a boil and add noodles. Cook to recommended time. Meanwhile, in a bowl combine peanut butter, rice vinegar, soy sauce and hot sauce. Whisk till smooth. Finely chop scallions and place aside. I used a peeler to make shavings of carrot. You could also grate the carrot or finely chop.

When soba noodles are finished drain and rinse with cold water. Add to the peanut sauce and toss until coated. Add the scallions, carrots and some finely chopped cilantro. Mix well, eat right away or allow to chill for a few hours. If thick after refrigeration you can add a touch of water to loosen the sauce. When serving add some additional peanuts on top. I also made a little mixture of a spoon full of hot sauce and soy sauce. Finish the pasta with a little spoon full for an added bite.

  12. Everytime I have to make something that looks amazing like this it turns out as a.. somewhat failure. But, I will try this anyway!
