Asian Noddle Salad

Ingredients:

 1 pound soba noodles (or other long pasta of your liking) 

  • 1 cup thinly sliced bell peppers 
  • ¼ cup green onion 
  • ½ cup thinly sliced red onion  

Dressing: 

  • 1 ½ tablespoons sesame oil 
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice 
  • 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro  
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt 
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds 
  • Lime wedges, for serving 

 Method: 

  • Cook noodles according to package instructions. Set aside to allow to cool.  
  • In a bowl, mix together sesame oil, garlic, ginger, salt and beef strips. 
  • Heat a skillet on medium heat and cook beef for 8 minutes, but browned.  
  • Using a jar, mix dressing ingredients; sesame oil, lime juice, chopped cilantro and salt. Shake jar until the dressing is emulsified.  
  • Toss noodles in dressing and stir in the bell peppers, red onion and green onion.  
  • Add the beef to the noodles and sprinkle with sesame seeds. 

Chefs tip: Making dressing in a jar (like one you have recycled) allows the fat from the oil and the citrus combine more easily. Try making all your dressings in a jar!

This Asian inspired noodle salad is perfect for the hot summer months ahead. It can be made ahead of time, stored in the refrigerator and would be great enjoyed on a picnic. I decided not to add heat, but if you enjoy a little spice, adding a tablespoon of Sriracha to the dressing would be delicious!
