What You'll Need

  • 1 pound pasta (your favorite type)
  • 1 box (6 ounces) frozen pea pods, thawed
  • 2 red bell peppers, diced
  • 1 cucumber, peeled, seeded, and diced
  • 6 scallions, chopped
  • 1/4 cup sesame oil
  • 1/2 cup peanut or vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 3/4 cup chunky peanut butter

What to Do

  1. In a large pot of boiling water, cook pasta until tender; cool under running water and drain.
  2. Meanwhile, to make dressing, thoroughly blend sesame oil, peanut or vegetable oil, soy sauce, lemon juice, ground ginger, garlic, scallions, and peanut butter in a blender or food processor. 
  3. Toss pasta with pea pods, red peppers, cucumber, scallions, and about 1-1/2 cups of the dressing. Serve immediately.


Serve as a side dish or a salad. Topped with grilled chicken or steak, it's a perfect main course. If you make the Sesame Dressing in advance or want to save the extra, it will keep for up to a week in the refrigerator. The recipe will yield about 2 cups dressing.

This sounds so good. I have to invite my Mom over and give it a try. *of course, need to do fried wontons on the side*.
