Cold Dinner - Peanut Sesame Noodles

Everyone once in a while, the weather gets so hot that even in Seattle Washington, you do not want to turn on the stove or oven even for a minute. If it happens that you also do not want to eat sandwiches, and cannot convince your family that a salad can be considered a meal, then you need recipes like this.

Peanut Sauce

  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 4 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar
  • 3 to 4 cloves minced garlic
  • water to thin sauce and make stirable
Cooked, drained and cooled Spaghetti Noodles

  • thinly sliced cucumber
  • crushed peanuts
  • shredded carrots
The sauce just needs to be well combined and can be done many days before hand. I often make a double batch and keep the extra in a pint jar in the fridge for another dinner or lunch. Combine everything right before eating and enjoy! This is a wonderful vegetarian cold meal for those hot days. Its also great picnic food if you want something a bit different than your usual fair.
