ASIAN NOODLE SALAD

ASIAN NOODLE SALAD

 

1 lb. linguine or spaghetti, cooked al dente

¼ cup olive oil

2 cup snow peas, stringed

3 cups cooked chicken breast, shredded (or cooked shrimp)

3 scallions, white and green parts sliced thin

1/3 cup cilantro leaves, chopped

1 red bell pepper, julienned and cut into about 3” strips

1 yellow bell pepper, julienned and cut into about 3” strips

1 orange bell pepper, julienned and cut into about 3” strips

1 ½ cups edamame beans, cooked and shelled

 

Dressing:

¾ cup soy sauce

¼ cup creamy peanut butter

¼  cup rice vinegar

1 Tbs. sesame oil

1 Tbs. sugar

1 tsp. fresh ginger root, grated

1 jalapeno, minced

1 tsp. black pepper

 

Place cooked linguini in a large bowl and toss with the olive oil to keep it from sticking together while you prepare the rest of the ingredients.

 

Place snow peas in a small pot of boiling water until bright green and crisp tender, about 30 seconds.  Rinse with cold water and drain well.  Add to the bowl with the noodles along with all of the other salad ingredients.

 

Combine all of the dressing ingredients in a small bowl and whisk vigorously until a smooth dressing forms.  Add dressing to the bowl and mix thoroughly.  I find it easiest to use my hands for this.  Served chilled or at room termperature.
