Cold Sesame Noodles Recipe

I recently had a craving for a dish that I can probably count on less than one hand how many times I have ate it. I thought that was the weirdest thing to get a craving for something you haven’t consumed any time in recent history. But, I guess that’s how hankerings work, they come when you don’t expect it. The dish I am talking about is cold sesame noodles. From my memory I remember them having a distinct bitter yet creamy flavor from the sesame and peanuts. Because I had all the ingredients in my house to make these, I decided to fulfill my craving without calling for take-out delivery.

These noodles are perfect for a hot summer day when you still want something savory. The silky noodles with the crunch from the sesame seeds and the cool crisp from green onion bits are a killer combination. Make this as a summer night side dish or enjoy the noodles all on their own for a light meal.

And so much for getting rid of the craving! The  sesame noodles were so tasty that I now am wanting them all the time 🙂
