New Mommy Rant to get another Delicious recipe!

Japanese Noodle Salad


1/4 cup reduced fat peanut butter

2 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce

1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice

1 1/4 tablespoons sesame oil

1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger

1 teaspoons minced garlic

1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

1/2 pound soba noodles

2 scallions, thinly sliced

1 medium carrot, peeled and thinly sliced

1/2 cup snow peas


Mix the peanut butter in a large bowl with the soy sauce, lemon juice, sesame oil, ginger, garlic and red pepper. Season with salt and pepper and set aside.
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the noodles and cook stirring constantly until the water returns to a boil. Cook until the noodles are al dente. Soba noodles are sold fresh so this will only take four to five minutes.
With a pair of tongs, lift the noodles out of the pot. Shake and place directly into the bowl with the peanut butter mixture. If needed, add 1 to 2 tablespoons pasta water to loosen up the sauce. Add the vegetables and toss well. Let cool. Cover and refrigerate.

This recipe makes around 4 servings.
