"Cold noodles are my lifesaver on hot summer days. This is a basic recipe for Chinese cold noodles, but you can amp them up with shredded chicken breast, a hard boiled egg, blanched carrot sticks, or soy bean sprouts. You can also substitute the wheat noodles out and replace with soba noodles for a low-carb version. The sauce can be made in a bigger batch to save for later, but I recommend making it and using it fresh!"
