cool asian noodle salad

July 16, 2011

i found a *great* summer salad recipe! we tried it last night and YUM, it was delish. and super easy. i had all the ingredients on hand, which was a bonus.

(this is inspired by a recipe in FAMILYFUN magazine)

for the salad:

:: noodles

:: 2 medium carrots – i peeled and shredded

:: sugar snap peas, trimmed and strings removed

:: 2 scallions

:: 1/2 c fresh chopped cilantro

for the dressing:

:: 1/4 c soy sauce

:: 2 tbsp rice vinegar

:: 1 tbsp sesame oil

:: 1 tsp honey

:: 2 tsp minced fresh ginger ( i didn’t have so i used powdered ginger)

:: 1 garlic clove, minced (again, i used powdered)

:: 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes

mix the dressing in the bowl, add noodles and extras. it would be great with diced cucumbers as well!
