Peanut Noodles with Crunchy Vegetables Directions

  1. To prepare the vinaigrette, place all ingredients into a blender and process until smooth—add 1 or 2 tablespoons of water if the mixture seems too thick.
  2. To prepare the salad, reserve about 4 tablespoons of the cilantro, and place the remaining ingredients into a large bowl.
  3. Pour the vinaigrette over all and toss thoroughly to combine.
  4. Place in a large salad bowl or on a serving platter and top with the reserved cilantro.
