This easy Spicy Peanut Noodle Salad combines a creamy, sweet, and spicy sauce with fresh crunchy vegetables and cold pasta.
*If the sauce is too sweet for your tastes, you can add a small amount of soy sauce to help balance the flavors. Start with a 1/2 tsp and add more if needed.
**Breaking the pasta in half makes it easier to incorporate the vegetables into the pasta later.
***Make sure the pasta is completely cooled to prevent cooking or softening the vegetables. If needed, run cool water over the pasta, but then allow it to drain and dry until the pasta is tacky. Watery pasta will make the peanut sauce slide off.
