Crunchy Noodle Salad
Tonight, I made a recipe my husband requested after watching an episode of Barefoot Contessa. I served it as a side with grilled chicken, but probably would serve it with an additional side as well next time, as it didn’t quite work as the only side dish.
I followed the recipe (link here) nearly exactly, although I did cut the oil by 1/3 of a cup. Also, I didn’t end up using all of the dressing, and even with not using all of the dressing, I still felt there was too much of it on the salad. Some other substitutions/changes: I used wheat pasta, and light soy sauce in place of the regular varieties of each of those.
Not my favorite meal, but then again I am not the biggest peanut butter fan, so perhaps that was why. With less dressing and less of the salad itself, I would probably like it better. On the other hand, my husband did love it! But, he agreed that it would be best in smaller portions.
