Ahhh I’m hungry…what do we have? I was looking for something citrusy, summery, zesty, sweet and tangy with a bit of kick. OK, this will do! Cold buckwheat noodles with mango, tomato, basil, garlic, lime, crushed peanuts, bell peppers & carrots topped with a creamy, salty/sweet/spicy peanut sauce. Awww yes, that’s what I want. Flavor explosion! Fast and easy sort-of-Thai-inspired cold summer noodles. The Bub and the Hub give it a thumbs up.
