I just wanted to thank everyone who has tried this recipe, and I'm glad others enjoy it..since we love it so much. I also wanted to credit the Bon Appetit Tastes of the World cookbook for their "Asian Noodle Salad with Chilies and Peanuts" recipe (pg 26). The very first time I made that recipe, I had to modify it because of a lack of ingredients, but I loved my changes..and continued to modify until it became what it is now! Nevertheless, it was this original salad recipe that inspired me and gave me the idea for the recipe that I submitted.

I had to make this because the tantalizing photos were calling to me.
I love it! The sauce is so delicious and peanut buttery.I used 1 box of udon noodles, and added the full  3 tbs  of chili oil and 1/2 a small can of coconut milk and basically left everything else the same. The green onions and cilantro put it over the top. thanks for a delightful dish. I will make this again for sure. ;)b

I made this tonight, and it remains to be one of our favorites! I added quite a bit of hot pasta water so that it would be extra saucy!  :P

This recipe was really yummy! I do have to say that I had to add about a 1/2 a cup of soy milk to make it more of a sauce. At first when I combined the original ingrediants it was still the consistancy of peanut butter. But after I added the milk it was amazing! Oh and for those who like alot of spice, I tried it a second time using thai garlic chili paste :)>>> and it was seriously spicy and delicious! Thanks for the reat recipe!

SO GOOD!! I used rice wine vinegar instead of balsamic, agave for the sweetener, thai sweet chili sauce, and I was unfortunately out of cilantro. Absolutely delicious, and next time I'll buy some cilantro (it's one of my favorites). AC, thanks for the super yummy recipe.
