Thai Noodle Salad


Now, KitchenAid, you are wonderful. I love you, I can't live without your stand mixer. And I want to have your everything! But YOU ARE NOT PERFECT.

I'm such a dumb who can't even manage to use your can-opener for one single time. Always stuck in the middle of the can top circle, I can never have a smooth cut. And the dumbest of the dumb was I used my bare hand to finish the thing off. I got cut. So deeply that I was not able to cook for days.

YOU ARE NOT PERFECT. But I love you.

I'm now just posting what I have in my archive.

(Serve 4-6)
Ingredients:
For Dressing:
1 cup honey
1 whole red pepper, seed removed
3 garlic clove, crushed
1 tsp hot pepper paste
1 tsp salt
2 tbsp lemon juice
2 tbsp white vinegar
2 tsp oyster sauce

For Noodle:
1/2 lb capellin noodle or spaghettini, cooked and cooled under cold water, drained
1 tbsp vegetable oil
2 garlic cloves, sliced
1 red pepper, finely sliced
4 green onion, cut thinly on the diagonal
1/2 cup Italian Parsley, coarsely chopped

Directions:
To prepare dressing, combine honey, red pepper, garlic, hot pepper paste and salt in the bowl of a food processor. Blend until the red peppers are pureed. Add lemon juice, vinegar and oyster sauce, stir well and set aside.

Heat oil over medium heat in a small skillet, and cook garlic just until it is fragrant and begins to brown, about 1 min. Remove from the heat and cool completely. 

In a large bowl, toss cooled pasta with garlic and oil. Add red pepper, green onion and parsley. Toss with enough dressing to coat and chill before serving.

I hope your hand heals quickly! This looks very tasty - all of my favorite flavors.

I love how you used the honey to sweeten it up. Also, I'm with you on the inability to open cans part. However, the OXO can opener has solved all my issues - cuts so smoothly into the can all the way through!

Sweet and Savory said...

Hope your hand is better.

I love this recipe. It has my favorite ingredients.

I have printed it up to make some day, this week, hopefully.

Oh, I hate when those kind of accidents happen! The pain isn't as bad as the "pain" of having to stay away from the kitchen! Yummy salad, and I hope you're back in business soon!
