Summer is already coming to an end for us here, and I'm reluctantly squeezing in every kind of summer meal I can before the frenzy of back-to-school kicks in. The funny thing about summer is that I have more time...but sometimes less motivation...to get my act together to prepare a meal.
Thankfully, my favorite go-to for summer nights happens to be recipe that can be adapted to anything you have on hand. Substitute spaghetti noodles for soba noodles. Sub almond butter for peanut butter. Sub leftover rotisserie chicken for grilled salmon. Use coleslaw mix instead of English cucumbers. It all works. And on those nights when a last minute dinner party comes together...you can be sure to feed a crowd. Make your own, or prepared ahead...you can't go wrong with Asian-inspired cold noodles with peanut sauce.
(makes enough for approx. 6-8 servings...and honestly, I usually wing it and taste as I go, but I really needed to have something concrete for you all!)
...add all to a pint size mason jar with lid and shake vigorously. Stir until smooth if needed, and adjust ingredients for taste and consistency.
Enjoy, friends! Let me know if you try it!
