directions

A flat lay of the ingredients needed for a cold noodle salad: veggies, soba noodles, peanut butter, soy sauce and honey
Step 1

Bring a pot of water to a boil and cook the rice noodles according to package instructions. Once they are cooked and drained from the water, allow to cool.

Step 2

Meanwhile, prepare the spicy peanut sauce: Place the peanut butter, lime juice, tamari, maple syrup, ginger and garlic in a small bowl and stir together until smooth and creamy.  You’ll likely need to add 2-3 tablespoons of water to thin out the consistency. Once you have the consistency you like, stir in the chili flakes.
