My friend Tammy always makes this salad for her parties. It's so easy to make. Make the dressing a day ahead if you can it's better that way. You can also add cooked chicken if you want to make it a main meal. YUMMY!
- 1 lb vermicelli
- 1⁄4 cup sesame oil
- 1⁄4 cup soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1 teaspoon hot chili oil (or more)
- 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
- 1⁄2 cup sesame seeds (toasted)
- 1 cup sliced green onion
- Cook vermicelli according to package directions and cool completely.
- Combine remaining ingredients except the sesame seeds and green onions, pour over noodles and toss.
- Add sesame seeds and greed onions and toss again.
Made this just as written but used 8 oz. Barilla Plus multi-grain angel hair pasta instead of a pound. Also added half a cup of chopped cilantro leaves and a large peeled and shredded carrot in addition to the sesame seeds and chopped green onions. Very nice and so easy. I always have these ingredients in the house, so I'll make this again.
I couldn't find vermicelli, so I substituted angel hair pasta. I planned on adding shredded leftover rotisserie chicken and shredded carrot, but felt that the dressing didn't seem adequate in quantity for just the pasta alone. I ended up adding more sesame oil and about 3 t. or so of hot chili oil. It was pretty good but, next time, I think I will cut back on the pasta. Made for 1-2-3 Hit Wonders Tag Game.
This is a great dressing for cold noodle salad. I add shredded carrot, ginger, broccoli and cauliflower, and some fried pork mince to bulk it up to make a full meal. Very nice and very easy.
