Awesome Asian Salad Recipe

Chowtime blog

And since I don’t have a food photo, you’ll have to settle for pics of Bellingham’s Premier Baby, eating strawberries.

So, last summer my sister-in-law Tara visited made Asian salad for us. It was one of those meals that was so delicious it had me thinking about it fondly, long after… I believe Tara got the recipe from Pioneer Woman’s site (she’s a huge fan of PW). Shortly after than she asked why I “wasn’t like Pioneer Woman”. As in, why isn’t my blog a huge national hit bringing in tons of money so I can tour the country and give away Kitchen Aid mixers and new cameras…umm, I guess I just haven’t been discovered yet…but that’s beside the point.

Anyway, I came up with my own delicious version that we often have for lunch, and here I am sharing it with you, my faithful readers.

Okay…for my crew I:

Boil two packages of spaghetti noodles. When they are cooked I run cold water on the noodles to cool them.

Next I dump in tons of raw, chopped veggies…usually: bell peppers (of any color), carrots and broccoli.

Then I add about a 1/4 cup of toasted sesame seeds.

Then my secret sauce…which I’m about to share with you, my dear friends…

3/4 cups of sesame oil

1/3 cup sugar

1/4 balsamic vinegar

3 Tablespoons soy sauce.

Toss, serve, enjoy.
