Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Prepare noodles according to package directions, omitting salt and cooking al dente. Drain and place in a large mixing bowl.
  2. Combine peanut butter, honey, soy sauce, lime juice, garlic, chili sauce and hot water; stir to blend well. Add oil in a steady stream, whisking to combine.
  3. Pour dressing over pasta and toss to blend. (If there is liquid in the bottom of the bowl, it will absorb into the pasta after all the additions.).
  4. Add spinach, carrots, green onions, broccoli slaw and cilantro to noodles. Toss well. Sprinkle with dry roasted peanuts before serving. Serve warm or at room temperature.
