Ninja Sesame Sauce

Ninja Sesame Sauce

I don’t know about where you’re at, but it’s still hot as hell where we are, with 99% humidity. Cold meals are where it’s at! I have literally never met a person who would not eat my cold sesame noodles when presented with a beautiful dish of them on a hot day.

 To make this salad, cook rice noodles according to package directions, rinse in cold water and dress with the sauce. Chill and garnish with toasted sesame seeds and thinly sliced scallions.

I wish I had a warm and fuzzy or funny story to tell you about sesame seeds or sesame noodles, but I simply do not. All I will say is that this sauce is like a ninja. It can shapeshift and appear as a different character in so many places…Dip your fresh rolls in it, mix it into cold, cooked rice noodles, swirl it into mayo and spread on toast with cooked chicken, avocado, and thinly sliced radishes for the most oddly delicious sandwich ever, cut up some veggies and use it as a dip, straight up…It is spectacularly addictive, so be careful and consider yourself warned!
