NOODLE SALAD/ Peanut Sauce

LOW FAT AND DELICIOUS!!  Who can resist those words.. This is just your basic Cold Noodle Salad...maybe with a couple of new twists.  On the hottest day,(or for me, any day...mmmmmgood) this is fast, easy, yummy!


1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 tsps. grated fresh ginger
2 cloves garlic
red pepper flakes to taste
1/2 cup water
1 tsp. sesame oil
8 oz. dry spaghetti
2 cups shredded cooked chicken
1 carrot, shredded
1/2 seedless cucumber, julienned
1 red pepper, thinly sliced
1/2 cup thinly sliced scallions

1.  Combine peanut butter, soy sauce, ginger, garlic, red pepper flakes, water and sesame oil, in blender or food processor.  Puree until smooth.  Add more water if needed.  Set aside.

2.  Cook spaghetti according to directions, drain and cool.

3.  In large bowl, add spaghetti, chicken, carrots, cucumbers, red peppers and scallions.  Pour half of sauce over mix.  Toss to coat, adding more if necessary.

4.  Serve with remaining sauce on the side.  Serves 4.

For vegetarian version, omit chicken or use tofu instead.
