Peanut Noodle Goodness

Sometimes you just want spicy peanut noodles, and nothing else will do. I used to know someone who had a Moosewood Cookbook with a really great recipe that was served cold and involved cucumbers. I don't have it anymore, but I concocted something similar based largely on this post and this...

Here you go...

The parts
1 4oz package soba noodles (cooked)
1/2 English cucumber in large cubes
1/2-1/3 red bell pepper
a few pieces of leftover chopped chicken
basil leaves
toasted sesame seeds

The sauce
1/8c peanut butter and tahini (a combo totaling 1/8c)
1/8c water
2T soy sauce
1T seasoned rice wine vinegar
.5T sesame oil
.5T spicy chili oil
red pepper flakes
diced ginger (maybe 1tsp)

Cook the noodles and run under cold water, combine with other chopped ingredients ("the parts"). In a small bowl whisk together the sauce ingredients. Combine it all. It is delicious, and is good the next day if not better! Yum! Craving: satisfied.
