And while I was away, I really missed my kitchen and really really missed cooking. Is that normal?
I think that I mostly just missed being able to assemble a few fresh ingredients and call it dinner.
A salad was born.
Asian Noodle Salad
from the Pioneer Woman
1 package linguine noodles, cooked, rinsed and cooled
1/2 head sliced napa cabbage
1/2 head purple cabbage
1/2 bunch baby spinach
1 whole red pepper, thinly sliced
1 whole orange pepper, thinly sliced
1 bag bean sprouts (also called mung bean sprouts)
chopped cilantro, up to one bunch
1 whole lime, juiced
8 T. olive oil
8 T. soy sauce
2 T. sesame oil
1/3 c. brown sugar
3 T. fresh ginger
2 whole jalapenos chopped
Mix salad ingredients together. Whisk dressing ingredients together and pour over salad. Mix with tongs or hands and serve on a platter. Dressing keeps for up to three days before serving.
