These noodles are savoury but with a bit of spice, plus they are quick and easy to make, and make a great meal for a cold supper!! Courtesy of Rachael Ray !!!

I only made the sauce, and since I didn't use it on a complete salad I don't want to give it a rating. It was not to our liking at all and we didn't use it. I made it with the tahini, and found it to be very vinegary and acidic, with an overpowering sesame flavor. Using peanut butter, especially if it had sugar in it, may have balanced it a little better (though I added sugar and honey and still didn't like it). Usually I like RR's asian dressings... oh well, next time :)
Yum-o! This is my favorite sesame noodle type salad ever. The spice blend is perfect for me. Because I was serving this to my kids, I reduced the hot sauce to one teaspoon, rather than a tablespoon. I also used cabbage from a bagged coleslaw mix to make it super easy. I love it! Thank you Julz and Rachael!
A good noodle salad, easy to make. The sauce for some reason was very thick and hard to coat, but had good flavor. I think next time some roasted red peppers or grated carrot would add a great splash of color, too. Thanks so much for posting!
