Easy spicy-hot cold noodles for summer

This recipe is an easy prepare-ahead dish for a hot summer day. It makes a good barbecue side dish for all of us who are tired of potato salads.


(serves 4-6)


  1. Cook the noodles in boiling water for 3 minutes, then drain. Rinse them in cold water until they are cool, then set aside to drain.
  2. Make the sauce by mixing together all of the other ingredients.
  3. Heat 4 Tbsp oil in a wok. When it is hot, pour in the sauce mixture, and then the noodles. Stir well to cover the noodles with sauce, then remove and cool.


You can serve this dish warm if you want, but it is better when cold. It is a good dish to prepare the previous day and leave in the refrigerator overnight.


Difficulty: easy.
Time: 15 minutes to prepare, 2 or more hours chilling.
Precision: No need to measure.
