Simple but very delicious! Holds great at room temperature--the perfect potluck salad!

Very good! Creamy and just the right amount of flavor. I added diced cucumber and would maybe add some shredded carrots next time. I don't think we would like it as much without the added veggies. Shredded cabbage would be great too!

  1. In boiling salted water, cook noodles until tender, five to ten minutes. Rinse in cold water until cool. Drain and toss with 1 teaspoon sesame oil and set aside.
  2. In a small saucepan over low heat, combine soy sauce and sugar. Simmer until syrupy, about ten minutes.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together the tahini, 1/4 cup sesame oil, vinegar and water and soy/sugar mixture until smooth. Season to taste with cayenne.
  4. To serve, toss noodles with dressing, green onions and sesame seeds, reserving some seeds for garnish.
