Nigella’s Sesame Peanut Noodles Recipe

I am always on the hunt for new salad ideas. I know this sounds like it’s probably a lie, and I promise it’s not, there’s not much I love more than a good salad. But I won’t settle for a simple garden salad. That doesn’t excite me. It actually bores me. BUT fancy salads, they’re my jam.

To prove the truth of this, I will tell you this. There’s a local guy who makes salads and he does them so deliciously, and when I visit and see what he’s been cooking, it’s like I’m looking at brand new puppy dogs. My excitement is REAL. I love a good salad.

So this one has me giddy. It has vegetables in it, so I’m calling it a salad. Sue me. This recipe is delicious, and isn’t particularly light on calories {not that I’ve counted them, but I’m taking a guess here} but it’s heavy on deliciousness. That’s what matters. And this recipe makes a TRUCKLOAD, so you can pick at it all week. Make it on Sunday, and love yourself sick for the days ahead.

Oh, and it’s a Nigella Lawson recipe. Enough said, really! She knows flavour!

I hope you enjoy. And most of all, I hope every single person in the family loves it {because that’s the dream, isn’t it?}.
