Simple Salad

This is the salad that I've been meaning to make and get up here for a minute but numerous things led to me not making it. Here it is in all its glory.
Now to make this little ditty put some of those rice noodles in some boiling water and let them sit off heat until they are cooked and soft. While you're waiting for that whisk peanut butter, soy sauce, sesame oil, rice vinegar, lime juice, sriracha and water together until you get a taste and consistency that you like. I have never measured while making this so just do as you will but don't go too heavy on either the sesame oil, rice vinegar or sriracha. The water will also be the last thing you add to thin it out a bit. Use a vegetable peeler and make little carrot ribbons for the salad, I just used one carrot. Next julienne some sugar peas in the pod and toss them in. Pull some cilantro apart and put that on top. Mix it all together and there you have it. Just missing one thing. Prepare whatever protein you're going to use. In this case I used a breaded "chicken" strip and put it on top. Feel free to do whatever you want for this. Its always nice to have a salad with protein in it and in the dressing since some people might not eat a whole lot of it. Goodnight.
