1/2 pound radishes, sliced thinly in rounds
1/2 cup black or white sesame seeds
Fresh cilantro, roughly chopped (optional)

3 tablespoons sesame oil
3 tablespoons rice vinegar or balsamic vinegar

PREPARATION

  • Toss with small quantity of oil to the noodles to prevent sticking and chill in the refrigerator while prepping remaining ingredients.

  • Put sesame seeds in a skillet or pan just large enough for them to cover the bottom.
  • Toast over medium heat about 3 min, shaking the pan gently to prevent burning.
  • Remove from heat.

  • When noodles and greens are chilled, toss or layer them with radishes, seeds, and dressing, garnish with cilantro and serve.

Serves 4. Prep time, 15 minutes; cook time, 5 minutes (not including cooking noodles).
