Peanut Ramen Noodle Salad

Serves 4

2 packages ramen noodles (any flavor, discard seasoning)
1/2 c peanut butter
1/4 c each water, vinegar, and teriyaki sauce
1/2 tsp minced garlic
1/4 tsp crushed bell pepper flakes (optional)
1 cucumber, 1/4ed lengthwise, seeded and sliced
2 carrots, shredded (I grated mine)
2 scallions, sliced

1. Cook ramen noddles, for 3 minutes or until tender. Drain and rinse under cold water; drain again.
2. Whisk PB, water, vinegar, teriyaki sauce, garlic, crushed red pepper in a medium bowl until smooth. Add noodles cucumber, carrots and scallions. Toss to mix and coat.

After tasting this I thought chicken breast would be really good added to the recipe. The sauce ends up being like a peanut sauce you would buy in the store. You could even add chopped up peanuts for that extra crunch. We all really enjoyed this.
