"I had made this for our annual 4th of July party and got wonderful reviews. I also made this for a BBQ and got even more compliments! I added yellow and red peppers and carrots but also green onion and bean sprouts. You could add leftover cooked chicken to make it a main dish for Asian style dinner. I like making it on day one but eating it on day two....yummy!"
"Gave this recipe 5 stars. Very good dressing. It is really similar to another one I make, however the other one calls for hoisin sauce which I have a hard time finding in my local grocery store. So decided to give this one a try and was not disappointed one bit. A very good peanut noodle recipe using a lot less ingredients than other similar recipes. The one change I made was using garlic chili paste instead of the hot sauce. Oh and omitted the red bell pepper because hubby doesn't like it. Will make again."
"I have made this twice in the last month, doubled, for groups of 10-20. It was a HUGE hit both times. I love that the only cooking is the pasta and it is served room-temp or cold. Our house has no AC and we are in the middle of a kitchen rehab, so this has been a great option for me. The only problem is ... I'm still craving them days after they are all gone!
Update: since I posted this review I have had no fewer than three requests for the recipe!"
"These noodles were soooo yummy! I cheated a little...I served them hot, because that's what the family requested. However, I did try the leftovers cold and they still tasted great! ;) I wanted to add more veggies to this, so I added a 1/4 cup cabbage and a 1/2 cup green bell pepper along with the red. I also cooked them for just a couple of minutes with some cooking spray before adding them, mostly because I added the cabbage. So yummy and very nutritious! Thanks! Made for ZWT4 - Los Jefes de la Cocina!"
"I served this with sub sandwiches and it was a hit with my family. I too served this room temp. and wouldn't do it any other way. DS loved it so much he added cubed chicken to it this morning and took it to school for his lunch. THank you for sharing this delicious salad with us, its a keeper in our house"
"YUM! Perfect to have in the fridge on hot days. I loved it as is, BUT I will definately puree or thinly slice the cilantro next time. When it is whole, or even lightly chopped it has a spiky feel in your mouth that I found unpleasant. The flavor is delicious, but we ended up picking out the cilantro because of that. I think a food processor will do the trick next time. :)"
"I am sorry we did not care for this recipe but I am still giving it 4 stars because I don't want to drag the recipe rating down as maybe it was just our taste preferences. Thanks for the recipe, though."
"These are great, a hit with everyone in our house. Used a 14-oz box whole wheat angel hair pasta and added some julienned cucumbers. Might double the sauce next time. Nice side next to grilled chicken breast tenders. Thanks for posting!"
"While I was looking up salad recipes for Father's Day I came across this recipe, and had to make it right then. In fact I'm trying it now, MMMM. Even without all the ingredients it still came out excellent. I used diluted wine vinegar, and regular vegetable oil, and added some 5 spice"
"This is was super good."
"I wasn't very impressed with this recipe. I cut the recipe in half to make "4 servings" and maybe I may have screwed up my calculations for the measurements but I feel that the sauce isn't balanced for the title "Peanut Noodles"...not to my taste anyway. I think it has STRONG potential to be AWESOME but I'd really have to tweek the mixture for the sauce. Thanks for sharing!"
"Outstanding! Followed the recipe except for the brown sugar, I used honey instead. I like heat so I used 1/2 tsp. Siraccha for the hot sauce. I did not have red pepper on hand so I used cucumber, carrot, and bean sprouts for crunch. The scallion is a must. Mixed with the noodles, taste and texture really Zinged! Added large stir fried shrimp (no breading) on top for a complete meal. And the sauce...Great! This one is a keeper. Thanks, Parsley."
"I just made this recipe and it was amazing. I changed a few things based on personal preference and what I had on hand. Instead of peanut butter I had almond butter, added a little crunch! I also doubled the cilantro cause I love it, added mung sprouts, used a whole bell pepper, two carrots, 1/2 a bunch of green onions, grated fresh ginger and chopped up one scallion. It was really tasty and wonderful. I am excited to do different veggies and mix it up a bit. This sauce will definitely be one that I keep on hand for a go to easy recipe. I was thinking the sauce would also be good for dipping spring rolls, etc."
"Awesome! The dressing is delicious! I added some thinly sliced cabbage and some shredded cooked chicken to make this a main-dish salad."
"I made this recipe to take along on a picnic--It was excellent! Plus I loved that I didn't have to worry about keeping it refrigerated. I added some chinese pea pods for a little more color. Will definitely be making again (especially during the summertime). Thanks for a great recipe!"
"Very nice sauce, hot, cold or room temp. Great combination of sweet, savory and spicy. I added 2T of sesame seeds because I didn't have the oil and 2T meyer lemon juice because I didn't have vinegar. I will be making this again."
I made this for the potluck tomorrow, but I couldn't help but steal a little bit after tossing it all together. I think I'll be making this again for sure, probably to keep on hand for school lunches.
The only change I made was that I had Peanut Butter Co. bran "The Heat is On" peanut butter which I used in place of the regular. I dropped the pepper flakes from the recipe sop it wasn't fire noodles. Also didn't use any sesame seeds on top. (though I might next time. just toast them up before hand)"
"Yum! I'm waiting (impatiently) for my husband to get home so we can eat this, but I tasted a little and it's great! I added cabbage, extra carrots, and some peanuts. Perfect for dinner but I'll keep it in my file for potlucks too :)"
"I'm not going to do stars on this one. I think b/c I used a natural peanut butter it really changed the consistancy of the sauce...it was almost pasty which I didn't expect. I might try this again when my husband is out of town so I can tweak it if needed. He didn't care for the consistancy either. The flavor was good."
