Cold Peanut Noodles

Cold Peanut Noodles

Okay, I don't know that you can really smell the orange, but my kids though this sounded fancy. Boost the main-dish status here with some shredded grilled chicken breast or rotisserie chicken.

Hands-On Time: 10 minutes
Ready In: 15 minutes
Yield: 4 servings


    1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
    3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
    1/3 cup orange juice
    1 clove garlic, pressed
    1/4 cup soy sauce
    1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
    1 tablespoon honey
    1 tablespoon ginger, freshly grated
    1/4 cup hot water
    1 pound angel hair pasta, cooked, drained and rinsed
    2 scallions, very thinly sliced (optional)
    1 English cucumber, peeled, seeded, and sliced into long, narrow strips, then cut crosswise
    2 tablespoons cilantro, coarsely chopped (optional)


  1. Whisk together first 9 ingredients in a large bowl.
  2. Add pasta, scallions, cucumber, and cilantro, and use your fingers to toss and coat the noodles. Add salt or more vinegar if it isn't as vibrant as you like.
  3. Let sit at room temperature if you're going to eat fairly soon — otherwise refrigerate.
