  • 1-½ pound Linguine
  • 1 bunch Cilantro, Roughly Chopped
  • 4 whole Green Onions, Thinly Sliced

  • 1 cup Chunky Peanut Butter

So I had something like this at a restaurant recently except it also included cucumber, carrots, chicken, and mango. It was divine, and I’m going to use this as my base to try to recreate it. I don’t know that it needs the chicken, but I do highly recommend the mango. It was unexpected but oh so good!

YUM! I forgot to buy cilantro so I went ahead w/o it & it was still yummy. Even my picky ones liked it.

I made this for a family gathering and it was a big hit! I added mango slices and extra lime juice per others have suggested. Everyone loved it.

This was awesome! We have a great Chinese takeout place about 30 minutes away that makes great Cold Noodle with Sesame. Since it’s a bit of a drive as far as takeout goes, I’m always on the lookout for a recipe that I can make at home and this is it! I used rice vinegar instead of red wine vinegar and added the juice of 1 lime. My family loved it and I’m sure that I’ll be making it several more times this summer, especially when it’s really hot. Thanks for the great recipe Ree. You’ve done it again!

Holy Toledo, this is seriously yummy! I mean I am not sharing this with anyone. I added cucumber and carrots to this, and, and, well it’s just amazing!
