Sesame Noodle Salad
(Cincinnati Enquirer)

1/2 cup toasted sesame paste (tahini)
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup water
1 tbsp wine vinegar
1/4 tsp hot sauce (or to taste)
1 pound dried spaghetti, cooked in salted water
1 tbsp dark sesame oil
1/2 cup chopped cucumber
1/2 cup chopped tomatoes
chopped cilantro
optional: blanched snow peas, broccoli, red or green pepper

Combine the sesame paste, soy sauce, water, wine vinegar in a bowl big enough to hold the spaghetti.

When spaghetti is cooked, drain and toss with sesame oil in the cooking pot. Add this to the sesame paste mixture and mix well. Chill several hours. Mix the blanched vegetables in right before serving. Garnish with the chopped tomatoes, cucumbers and cilantro.

Can be made two days ahead of use, serve at room temperature.
