|5 tbsp||vegetable oil|
|4 tsp||chili flakes|
|4 tsp||sesame seeds|
|2 tbsp||light soy sauce|
|1 tbsp||rice vinegar|
|toasted sesame oil|

Use a large box grater to grate the cucumber into long, thin strips. Chop scallions into fine rings. Mince garlic and cilantro.
Bring a pot of water to boil and add noodles. Boil for approx. 1 min. less than stated time on the package. Drain and rinse under cold running water. Toss with a bit of sesame oil so the noodles don’t stick together. Add to a bowl.
Heat vegetable oil in a small frying pan over medium heat. Once it starts to shimmer, add it to a small bowl with scallions, garlic, chili flakes, and sesame seeds and mix together. Add soy sauce, rice vinegar, salt, and sugar to the sauce and mix again.
Divide cold noodles among serving bowls. Top noodles with grated cucumber and peanuts. Drizzle sauce all over and garnish with cilantro. Mix thoroughly before enjoying!
