I want to make a cold noodle recipe that includes stuff I have on hand. I'm using soba noodles, cucumber, carrots, microgreens. But I need a sauce! I want it light like lime and red wine vinegar and oil. But don't know if that's a good combo and what I would add to that as far as spices? Or got another really light tasting "sauce"?
You could try thinning out some tahini. Just a squeeze of lime would be good, too. I don't know if lime and red wine vinegar would go together, but you could try it. Or even just some soy sauce. I find cold or hot noodles pretty good when mixed with veggies with only a simple sauce, or even just a little pepper.
not sure about lime and red vinegar, white vinegar maybe. I'd take the lime juice, olive oil, some dry ginger and soy sauce. or if you're really limited just the lime and oil, some soy, wisk together and toss with the noodles. I think that a spoonful of peanut butter would work really well, even just a touch. loosen it up by wisking with a bit of water and add the lime/oil/soy, would be yummy. good luck!
I'm kinda sick of the peanut sauce, I did it too much before and want a lighter variety. I got the idea about the lime juice and red wine vinegar from a blog calle Kaitlyn's Kitchen. I've used that same dressing on salads and really love it. I guess that kind of answers my question, if I loved it on salads, I'm sure I'll love it on my noodles.
But if anyone else has other ideas, I'm open to listening. Thanks, all.
