Cold Noodles with Asian Peanut Sauce #FoodieExtravaganza

This is one of my favorite recipes. I love leftovers, and somehow a cold peanut noodle salad, tastes like the best kind of leftovers. The tang of soy sauce and ginger and garlic…so good for a quick lunch, and since this takes less than 30 minutes from start to finish, I know you will love it too!

Cold Noodles with Asian Peanut Sauce

This recipe is very loosely inspired by the Szechwan Noodles in the Barefoot Contessa Cookbook (the original one! page. 108)

I say, loosely since I changed quite a bit! The original recipe is fantastic, I just didn’t have all the ingredients that she called for, nor did I want to, so I came up with this version, which is way cheaper, easier to make and just as good!

In case you want to make hers, just know the changes I made:

  • I omitted the tahini, sherry, hot chili oil, sesame oil
  • I changed the process, to hand whisk instead of process it. I halved the recipe to serve 4.
  • I added tabasco, made the peanut butter natural, used cider vinegar instead of sherry vinegar, used tamari instead of soy, powdered ginger instead of fresh.

See? I did say, loosely!
