Excellent Sauce! We cooked chicken and sauteed bell peppers, green onion, garlic, snap peas, a jalapeno and broccoli (using veggies in the fridge)...then tossed the sauce in at the end. Delicious over noodles!
This was really good, and very easy! I also cut way back on the cayenne, but I added just of touch of garlic chili paste, because I love the little flecks of red in it. I also added some cooked shrimp on top of the noodles for a little protien with my lunch. Thanks for a great recipe! Edited to add- I made this the night before I wanted to eat it, and it was still perfect the next day.
This was just delicious! It was the side dish to a pan-Asian meal that just really came together well: Lychee Lime Sparkler beforehand, this as the entree with Spicy Thai Noodles on the side, and Iced Coffee as the beverage. I used rice wine vinegar and greatly reduced the cayenne so our preschooler could eat it. I topped it with baby carrots quartered lengthwise, quartered sliced water chestnuts, green onion and chopped cilantro. It had a delicious flavor--not too sweet. The only improvement I can think of is possibly the addition of a little fresh grated gingerroot? Just a wee tip--when making the dressing, I had trouble getting it to emulsify until I grabbed a whisk. Then it came together beautifully into a nice, creamy dressing.
