Tasty Peanut Noodle Pasta Salad Recipe Review

Oh, my freaking tasty goodness! I think this salad changed my life.  Tasty’s Peanut Noodle Pasta Salad was simple yet had a complex flavor.  I did make some minor changes to the recipe for my liking but certainly didn’t stray too far.

 

I first saw this recipe on my Facebook feed.  I was a bit cautious because in the past I was not a bit fan of peanut butter mixed with sauces let alone pasta.  But the video kind of got me going.

The recipe certainly was flavorful.  It only had a little bit of heat from the siracha but not enough to even tingle your tongue.  As mentioned, I have made variations, however, I do find that the cucumbers do play a key roll in making sure the salad remains moist.  Without those, you may need to add a bit more water to help make sure the sauce is not too sticky after it has sat for an hour.  Other adjustments I have made:

Replaced Raw Ginger with 1/4 tsp of Ginger Powder – The fresh raw ginger does have present a strong crisp peppery flavor.  With the ginger powder, the taste was a bit more subdued.

Replaced Linguine Noodles with Fettuccine – First, the linguine noodles taste better on the palate than the fettuccine noodles.  If the mouthy density of the noodles doesn’t make a difference to you then as the recipe states, any noodle will work.

86 the Cilantro – I have made this salad several times and sometimes I do and don’t have cilantro.  Either way, the salad still turns out great.  Knowing some people have a real aversion to cilantro having it on the side is a great option too.  But to other lovers of cilantro like myself, it brings the flavor that only cilantro can offer.

No Peanuts, No Problem – I like the crunch that the peanut offers in contracts to the soft noodles.  However, the fresh peppers also provide a crunch but it does not pack a punch.  So no peanuts no problem…you will still have a great salad.

Tasty has done it again! Try the recipe for yourself!
