Description

This Spicy Peanut Soba Noodle Salad features red peppers, cabbage, chicken, soba noodles, and a quick homemade spicy peanut sauce. Salads don’t get much yummier than this.


Ingredients

Units Scale

For the Spicy Peanut Sauce:

  • 5 tablespoons peanut butter
  • 5 tablespoons water
  • 5 tablespoons soy sauce, or tamari for gluten free
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil (optional – for flavor)
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/4 cup chili sauce like sriracha (more or less depending on spice tolerance)
  • 1/2 cup peanuts

For the Salad:

  • 1 lb. chicken breast
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 34 cups chopped purple cabbage
  • 10 ounces soba noodles
  • fresh cilantro or basil to taste
  • crushed peanuts for topping

Instructions

  1. Spicy Peanut Sauce: Puree sauce ingredients in a food processor or blender. Add the peanuts last so you can control how chunky it is (I like to leave it a little more on the chunky side).
  2. Chicken: Cook the chicken in a skillet over medium high heat. Season with salt and pepper. When the chicken is cooked through, set aside until cool enough to handle and shred the meat.
  3. Vegetables: Chop the red pepper, cabbage, and cilantro to your desired size for the salad.
  4. Noodles: Cook the noodles according to package directions (usually just boiling for a few minutes).
  5. Assemble: Toss everything together with enough dressing to generously coat everything. Serve hot or cold!
