Cold Chinese Noodles in Peanut Sesame Sauce
- Cook noodles in large pot of boiling unsalted water over medium heat until barely tender and still firm. Drain immediately and rinse with cold water until cold. Drain well and toss noodles with dark sesame oil so they don't stick together.
- For dressing, combine all dressing ingredients except hot water in a blender or food processor fitted with steel blade and blend until smooth. Thin with hot water to consistency of whipping cream. Just before serving, toss noodles with sauce. Use about 6 heaping tablespoons of dressing per pound of noodles. Garnish with cucumber, peanuts, green onion, and carrot curls. Serve at room temperature.
