Spicy Sesame Noodle Salad

 
 
This recipe is fast, easy and perfect to make ahead when you need to pack a lunch.  It's also a great way to use leftover spaghetti!
 
 
Ingredients:
 
1 Cup Cooked/Cold Whole Wheat Spaghetti (you can also use cold soba noodles)
1/2 TBS Low Sodium Soy Sauce
1 Tsp Rice Vinegar
1/8 Tsp Sesame Oil (optional)
1/2 TBS Chili Garlic Sauce (you can use more, less or skip this all together depending on how spicy you want it to be)
5 Baby Carrots (sliced into matchsticks)
1 Scallion (sliced thin)
1 TBS Crushed Peanuts
1 Tsp Toasted Sesame Seeds
 
Directions:
 
Combine cold spaghetti, soy sauce, vinegar, sesame oil, and chili garlic sauce.  Toss well to evenly distribute all ingredients.  Top with carrots, sliced scallion, peanuts and sesame seeds.  Enjoy!
 
Notes: 
- The recipe is for a single serving, but you can make increase the number of servings...just multiply each ingredient amount by the number of servings you want ;)
- This tastes great cold or at room temperature, so it's great to make ahead and pack for lunch.
- If you want to make this more filling you can add bite sized pieces of extra firm tofu, raw broccoli, zucchini, and/or serve it over a baby spinach salad.
