Cold noodle salad with peanut sauce

Based on 17 ratings

"On hot days, I prefer to eat cold dishes. And of course, noodle salad (or in this case, soba noodle salad) is always a good choice. Here I opted for a spicy peanut sauce paired with cucumber, red cabbage and snap peas. You can try using other raw veggies and adjust the spice levels to your taste. An extra squeeze of lemon or even chilli crisp also goes well with the dish. If you can't eat it all at once, you can store the noodles in the fridge for up to 3 days."
