Peanut Udon Noodle Salad

Every so often I want peanut sauce and I could put it on everything.

Tonight I put it over udon noodles and it was delicious.

2 tablespoons fresh ginger. Use only fresh.

4 cloves of garlic

3/4 cup  peanut butter

2/3 cup hot water

1/4 cup soy sauce

2 tablespoons vinegar

2 tablespoons sesame oil

2 teaspoons honey

One teaspoon red pepper flakes

One pound of udon noodles

1 chopped red pepper

3 diced scallions

Handful of diced cilantro

Sliced limes

Spinach

Chopped peanuts

Hot sauce

Saute the garlic in the sesame oil for two minutes

Mix the ginger and garlic in the food processor and pulse till smooth

Add the sesame oil, peanut butter, water, soy sauce, vinegar, honey and red pepper flakes and pulse till smooth.

You may have to add some extra water to make it pourable.

Cook the udon according to the package directions. Drain.

Mix in a bowl with the peanut dressing

Place a bed of fresh spinach on each plate.

Place three to four heaping spoonfuls of udon on each plate.

Top with the scallions, red pepper, cilantro, chopped peanuts and limes.

This can be served hot or cold.

This recipe was originally from Epicurious but with a couple of changes now.
