Sesame and Cilantro Vermicelli Salad

     Recipe from Simply Recipes


Honey soy dressing : 

1/4 cup grapeseed oil or corn oil (I used olive)
3 tablespoons of dark sesame oil
1/2 teaspoon crushed dried red pepper flakes or chili powder
3 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons gluten free soy sauce


8 oz vermicelli
1/2 cup chopped cilantro
1/4 cup chopped roasted peanuts
1/4 cup thinly sliced green onions
1/4 thinly sliced and chopped red pepper
1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds


Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain, but do not rinse. 

While the pasta is cooking, combine the grapeseed oil, sesame oil, and red pepper flakes in a small sauce pan and cook until heated through. Remove from heat and add the honey and soy sauce. Mix well. 

Combine the cooked pasta with the dressing in a large bowl until the pasta is well coated. Cover and chill for several hours. When ready to serve, mix in peanuts, green onions, red pepper. Garnish with toasted sesame seeds. 

The recipe is supposed to serve 4-8 people. Is it bad that I ate the whole thing myself? : )
