Peanutty Sesame Noodles

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Mercy

After watching Rachael Ray prepare her cold sesame noodles on TV, I tried it out myself and ended up tweaking it a bit before I was done. These noodles are usually half eaten before they get a chance to cool down!

Wow - this is fantastic. It's great just as the recipe is, though I used 1/2 pound of noodles and it was just enough sauce. I used a little extra cayenne, I added about 1 T honey instead of the sugar and the result was sweet and spicy, just like I like it. I used the juice of half a lime, as some reviewers suggested, but I think it was fine without it. I did stir in 2 thinly-sliced scallions, some fresh cilantro (because I had some on hand) and some toasted sesame seeds. I garnished it with some crushed peanuts. Beautiful!
