Noodles with peanut lime dressing


Well-known member
On another board someone was looking for a peanut sauce and I posted this one. It is incredibly good. It is the lime that really makes it. I cut back on the oil.
I have also added shredded carrots and even snow peas.

Serves 4

1 lb cooked al dente, cooled thin pasta, note: that's 1 lb. after cooking.
2-4 scallions,chopped, save some for garnish.
1 red bell pepper, julienned, save some for garnish
Roasted peanuts, chopped, save all for garnish

Peanut-Lime Vinaigrette (recipe below)

Toss altogether & garnish with scallions, red bell pepper and peanuts.

Peanut and Lime Vinaigrette
1 T grated fresh ginger
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 serrano chili, chopped
3 T fresh cilantro leaves
1 1/2 T smooth unsalted peanut butter
3 T fresh lime juice
1 1/2 T rice vinegar
1 1/2 T soy sauce
1 1/2 tsp light brown sugar
2/3 cup canola oil
1 T sesame oil
Salt to taste

In a food processor, process everything except the oil.
Then slowly drizzle the oil in until emulsified. Scrape
into a bowl and wait for half an hour for the flavours to develop.

This is good to add leftover pulled pork or shrimp.
