This salad served cold is a wonderful summer meal or side dish. I think it is best when prepared a day or two ahead of time so that the noodles have ample time to marinate and soak up all of the wonderful flavor.

  • 1 lb angel hair pasta
  • 1 tsp. crushed dry red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 cp. oil (any kind; corn may be best)
  • 1/4 cp. sesame oil
  • 6 T honey
  • 6 T soy sauce
  • 1/2 cp chopped cilantro
  • 1/2 cp chopped peanuts
  • 1/2 cp chopped green onions
  • 1 red bell pepper sliced into thin strips
  • 2 T sesame seeds
  • For a heartier meal add 1-1/2 lb cooked and chopped chicken (in a pinch I like to buy the roasted chicken in the grocery store). If you add chicken you will need to double the dressing because it will soak up a lot of the marinade.


  1. Cook noodles, drain well and add chicken.
  2. While noodles are boiling, heat oils and red pepper flakes over med. heat for 2 min. Add in soy, honey, green onion and red bell pepper. Mix well with cooked noodles. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours. When ready add in peanuts and cilantro. Sprinkle with sesame seeds. Enjoy!

      Thanks, Leslie! Is this the salad that I've had the last couple of years at your Japanese New Year's party? If so, I'll add a review! I love that salad!
