For the dressing

  • 2 Tablespoons peanut butter
  • 4 Teaspoons sambal oelek
  • 4 Teaspoons rice vinegar
  • 4 Teaspoons soy sauce
  • 1/4 Cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 Teaspoon black sesame seeds

For the salad

  • 4 Ounces soba noodles
  • 1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 Cup shelled edamame, cooked
  • 2 large carrots, peeled and shredded
  • 4 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 Cup crunchy rice noodles


For the dressing

In a small bowl, whisk together peanut butter, sambal oelek, rice vinegar, and soy sauce. While whisking, drizzle in the olive oil, until all the oil is incorporated. Stir in sesame seeds.

For the salad

In a large pot of boiling water, cook noodles according to package instructions. When cooked, rinse under cold water, and drain.

Divide spicy peanut dressing equally among 4 pint-sized jars. Put soba noodles on top of dressing in each jar. Layer remaining ingredients on top, and finish with the crunchy rice noodles.

Seal jars and refrigerate. To serve, either toss salad together in the jar, or pour into a bowl, and stir everything together.
