Serves: 8
Total Calories: 233


1 (15-ounce) package soba noodles, uncooked
1 1/2 teaspoons sesame oil
1/3 cup rice vinegar
1/3 cup soy sauce
juice and zest of 1 lime
2 tablespoons brown sugar, packed
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 teaspoons red pepper flakes, or more to taste
1 cup carrot, peeled and finely grated
1/4 cup peanuts, coarsely chopped
1/2 cup fresh cilantro, chopped


Break noodles into 3-inch lengths; cook according to package directions. Drain and rinse with cold water; set aside. In a large bowl, combine remaining ingredients except carrot, peanuts and cilantro; stir until sugar dissolves. Stir in noodles and remaining ingredients; cover and refrigerate at least one hour. Toss salad again just before serving; add a little more soy sauce and vinegar if mixture seems dry. Serve chilled.

Tip: Whip up a jarful of homemade buttermilk dressing...wonderful on tossed salads and a delicious dip for fresh veggies too. Blend 1/2 cup buttermilk, 1/2 cup mayonnaise, one teaspoon dried parsley, 1/2 teaspoon onion powder, 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder, 1/8 teaspoon dill weed and a little salt and pepper. Keep refrigerated.
