Linguine
Salad with Peanut Sauce

Gretchen H. Maust Keezletown, VA

Linguine Salad with Peanut SauceMakes
6 servings

Prep
Time: 15 minutes

Cooking Time: 15 minutes

Ingredients

8-oz. box dry linguine

½-1 cup chopped scallions

1 diced cucumber

¼ cup peanut butter

1/3 cup cider or
rice vinegar

¼ cup soy sauce

¼ cup warm water

1/3 cup sesame oil

2 cloves minced garlic

½ tsp. 5-spice powder

hot sauce to taste

dark green lettuce leaves

toasted sesame seeds and tomato wedges for garnish

Directions

1. Cook linguine as directed on box, but undercook slightly. Drain. Rinse with cool water.

2. In a large bowl, combine linguini, scallions, and cucumber.

3. In a separate bowl, whisk together peanut butter, vinegar, soy
sauce, water, oil, garlic, 5-spice powder, and hot sauce.

4. Arrange lettuce on platter. Spoon linguine mixture into the middle.
Drizzle dressing over top. Garnish with sesame seeds and tomato wedges.

Variations

1. For a heartier dish, add cubed cooked chicken or turkey.

2. Serve hot, replacing the cucumbers with cooked zucchini.

Tip

I like to triple the peanut sauce and keep it in the refrigerator to
use as a salad dressing or dipping sauce for grilled chicken.
