Peanut Butter Noodle Salad - Nigella


I found this wonderful recipe on Bon Appetit, a blog, not the magazine.,  Go take a look and see for yourself. I knew it would be a hit and even though, I was missing some of the ingredients, I went ahead and put it together. What a success!!!!

It was easy to make and delicious to eat. For the original recipe, go to the source and get all the details.


Of course, it doesn't hurt that this is a recipe, originally from Nigella Lawson, one of my favorites. What I like about her is the way she writes her books, with cute phrases, hints and interesting pieces of information.  It is like reading a novel with fantastic recipes included.

This recipe is from a few years ago and I see that she has a new recipe for this salad that looks interesting too.  It is on Food Network.

Peanut Butter Noodle Salad adapted from Nigella Lawson


Ingredients:



Dressing 

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 tablespoon sesame Oil
1 teaspoon garlic flavored rice vinegar
1 tablespoon soy sauce
2 teaspoons chili sauce
2 tablespoons peanut  butter


Salad

12 ounces thin white rice noodles
2 cups shredded cabbage
4 scallions, thinly sliced
sesame seeds - a generous sprinkling
1/2 green bell pepper, thin sliced
1/2 orange bell pepper, thin sliced
1/2 cup carrots, thin sliced

Cook noodles according to package instructions. Drain and put aside.

In a small bowl, combine the ingredients for the dressing. Mix until it is well blended. If necessary, heat peanut butter in microwave for a 10 seconds so that it is easier to incorporate. 

Slice all the vegetables, slicing as thin as possible with a sharp knife. Cut the green pepper strips in half. 

Place half the noodles in a serving dish. Cover with vegetables and mix. Add the remaining noodles and mix, once again. Pour dressing over and mix well enough to coat the noodles and vegetables.

Sit down and feast on the flavors and the crispy vegetables.
