"This is my favorite cold noodle salad! I loved it so much, we made mass quantities for my wedding. There are some similar recipes out there, but after testing over and over, here is the combination that I think works best. I kept the recipe vegetarian, but I usually add cooked bay shrimp. You can add any kind of meat or veggies!! You can also omit or add more of the cayenne depending on your "spicy tolerance"! You can certainly substitute spaghetti for the Soba noodles, but Soba noodles really work best."
Serving Size: 1 (338 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 8
"This was AWESOME! I used thin spaghetti in place of the soba noodles though. My husband and I can't stop eating it!!!"
"OMG!! Talk about an addicting salad. I couldn't stop eating it! I cut it in half and was sorry I didn't make the whole thing. I used edamame instead of green peas and added some chopped raw carrots. I'm making this one for company. It's to die for! Thanks so much!!"
"Fantastic! It's a little on the oilier side than I usually make, but on the plus side it's not at all dry! I really liked the dressing, and although I'm vegan I do eat honey so I used some - I could see subbing agave nectar instead or maybe brown rice syrup. I left out all the cayenne just to please my diners who don't like spice, but if it were just for me I'd have put some in. I had no peanuts so I used some raw cashews instead and sprinkled with sesame seeds. I will gladly serve this at my next get together or potluck maybe with some cubed smoked tofu thrown in. Thanks!"
"My family loved this. I have added stir fried pepper steak or chicken marinated in the dressing to to make this dish a hearty main course. I also find that shredded carrots are a nice addition."
"This dish is great! I used thin spaghetti and also added some cooked shrimp. Next time I might add some shredded carrots and edemame as suggested by another reviewer. Thanks for posting!"
"Definitely try this recipe. WOW what a great salad. I made it for three but using noodles only for two. Didn't saute the peppers and used sugar snap peas. I also added half a roasted chicken breast. Would be great also with shrimp. I could eat this salad all the time."
"A really great and easy recipe, full of flavour."
"I'm not a fan of soba noodles but I did use spaghetti. This was different for me but soooooo good. I enjoy the vinegar taste to it. I love it. I've never had anything like this. Thank you for this experience. YummO!!!"
"Yummy!! I made this as directed except that I halved it for two of us. I grilled a couple of chicken breasts to have on the side, served it warm, and we devoured the whole dinner. Thanks Mrs Goodall for a new keeper."
"I halved the recipe and it was gone in no time. We all loved it. I used plain peanuts not honey roasted peanuts and I liked it this way. Plan on making again! Thanks for sharing this recipe, Mrs Doodall!"
"I think this is very tasty. I halved the recipe. I thought it was more sweet than spicy. I really like the green onions and peanuts together! Thanks for a great new dish."
"I'd say this has quite a hot spicy flavour, but it went down very well indeed! Mr B and I both marked this a 4*, but afterwards I realised I had forgotten to add the peanuts (oops!). Perhaps this marking is a little unfair, but I'm sure there will be fans of Thai cuisine who will be happy to give it 5. I served this dish warm, so I do have a good excuse to make it again sometime to try it chilled!"
"I found this recipe after narrowing search results to vegan only, but vegans do not use honey. Disappointing, but I will try it and substitute raw sugar or maple syrup instead."
