Supper Club: Thai Noodle Salad

This was the other recipe I picked for Thai night. It was a little more involved than the shrimp, but it was relatively low maintenance. The peanut sauce was good – better than the one I made a while back – but still not as good as Ina’s. I think I’m going to have to make that one again, since I keep comparing everything else to it! I did use whole wheat pasta, which could have made it a little drier than it should have been. Dino squeezed a little lime juice on his and said it helped it out a lot.

Here’s a shot of the whole meal (minus the soup that I slurped down before taking a photo):
