2 tbsp rice vinegar
1 tbsp smooth peanut butter
1 tbsp sugar
2 tsps minced garlic
2 tsps chili-garlic paste
1/4 cup chopped roasted peanuts
Optional-but not necessary- ginger and sesame paste and cucumber
1. Boil noodles until barely tender (<5 mins), drain, rinse with cold water & toss with a splash of sesame oil.
2. Whisk everything else but peanuts together in a bowl.
3. Pour the sauce over the noodles. Add peanuts (and cucumber) to garnish.
Yum. killer good, great for potlucks.
