Sesame Noodle Salad

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Leslie in Texas

I got this recipe from a good friend years ago. It's simple, easy, cheap, and addictive! What more could you want ? I've also added leftover cooked, sliced chicken or pork and crisp-steamed veggies such as bell peppers, broccoli, snow peas, carrots, etc. to make this a one-dish meal, doubling the dressing amounts.

i have made this recipe with oodle of noodle instead of capellini and it's very tasty. i also heat all ingredients at once b/c the oil popped out of the pan when i added the soy. very good recipe, thanks for sharing!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook capellini to "al dente" stage.
  2. Don't overcook, as noodles will soften as they absorb dressing.
  3. Set noodles aside.
  4. Heat oil, sesame oil, and crushed red pepper over medium heat about 2 minutes; stir in honey, soy sauce and salt and bring just to a simmer.
  5. Toss warm dressing with cooked pasta and refrigerate, covered, 4 hours or more to allow flavors to blend.
  6. Just before serving, toss in cilantro, green onions, sesame seeds and peanuts.
