I've made this recipe for Cold Sesame Noodle Salad for two recent gatherings and it was a hit at each one. Simple ingredients and easy to prepare - my favorite combo!
Cold Sesame Noodle Salad
Recipe from The Daily Meal
8 oz whole-wheat spaghetti
2 Tbsp plain Greek yogurt (I used Chobani 0%)
2 Tbsp reduced-sodium soy sauce
2 Tbsp peanut butter
1 Tbsp sesame oil
1 Tbsp unseasoned rice vinegar
1 tsp fresh grated ginger
1 tsp chili sauce (I used Sriracha)
1 cucumber, diced
1 red pepper, diced
3 cups spinach, chopped
2 scallions, thinly sliced
Toasted sesame seeds, for garnish
Cook spaghetti according to package directions. Once cooked, drain and rinse with cold water.
While the spaghetti is cooking, whisk together Greek yogurt, soy sauce, peanut butter, sesame oil, rice vinegar, ginger and chili sauce.
Combine the noodles and cucumber, pepper and spinach. Pour the sauce over the top and gently mix until the noodles and vegetables are evenly coated. Top with the scallions and toasted sesame seeds.
