THAI NOODLE SALAD


Thai peanut dressing is delicious straight out of the bowl as a dip for summer rolls, but toss it with salad, coleslaw or noodles and you've got a tasty summer salad to serve as a side dish or lunch for 2. I served this noodle salad, without the sriracha, as a side for my fiery hot Firecracker Tofu.

6 oz spaghetti

1 Tbsp sesame oil

4 cups shredded cabbage

2 carrots, peeled and shredded

1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
