Cold Sesame Noodles for a Hot Summer Day

With the dog days of summer upon us, I have struggled many nights to get myself in the kitchen. This noodle dish is quick, easy and requires no cooking, just boil water!

Cold Sesame Noodles
1 package Thai rice noodles
1/2 cup sesame oil
1/2 sup low sodium soy sauce
1/3 cup honey
1-2 tbsp samba olek
1/2 cucumber sliced and quartered
1 cup fresh sugar snap peas, cut in half
2 green onions, thinly sliced.
2 tbsp sesame seeds plus more for garnish

Bring a water up to a boil and add to rice noodles in a heat proof bowl. Let noodles cook for 10 minutes or until tender. Drain noodles and rinse with cool water.

Mix oil, soy sauce, honey, samba olek and green onions. Add to rice noodles along with cucumber, sugar snap peas and sesame seeds. Noodles can be served immediately or can be chilled for 1 hr and then served. Garnish with sesame seeds and extra green onions.

Stay cool!
