This sesame noodle salad was inspired by one that I once got at a little shop in New York for my flight home, and I liked it so much I took a picture of the label with the ingredients to experiment with them at home. I also added smoked tofu and red cabbage.

The final result turned out amazing and has become my number one enjoy warm or cold easy to transport crowd-pleaser to bring when I’m invited somewhere.

I updated the recipe and video in June 2019 because I adjusted the recipe and process and its now even better and easier. And this is how to make it.
