Yield: 4-6 servings
 
Ingredients
  • 1 lb soba, rice or other thin noodles- cooked, and cooled
  • ½ cup creamy peanut butter
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons Sriracha or 1 tablespoon Szechwan chili paste*
  • 3 tablespoons rice vinegar

  • 1 tablespoon grated peeled ginger
  • 1 small cucumber
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 1 green onion
  • sesame seeds for garnish, (optional)
Instructions
  1. Dice the cucumber and bell pepper. Thinly slice the green onion, separating the white and green parts. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl whisk together the peanut butter, soy sauce, Sriracha, vinegar, and sesame oil.
  3. Add the noodles and toss to combine. Stir in the cucumber, red pepper and the white parts of the onion. Toss thoroughly until the noodles are evenly coated. Garnish with the green parts of the onion and sesame seeds.

Notes
*I have a jar of Szechuan chili paste that I love in this. I found it in my grocery store's Asian food section. It's a great alternative to Sriracha and lends the perfect amount of spice!
