Recipe Fridays: Noodle salad with peanut sauce

"Thai" peanut noodle salad
(serves 4 as side or 2 as main course)

Soba noodles (8 oz or so)
1 red pepper
1 carrot
pea pods (2 handfuls)
1 scallion

1/3 cup peanut butter
1 T sesame oil
2 T fish sauce
2 T soy sauce
2 T rice vinegar
Half-inch piece ginger
Red pepper flakes and agave nectar or sugar to taste

Julienne all vegetables (cut into thin strips--it's time consuming but better this way.  If you have a grater, even better!  This includes scallions and pea pods, cut everything into strips).  Boil soba noodles until al dente, according to package directions.  Blend sauce ingredients in blender or food processor until smooth, adding a little water to thin out if necessary.  Combine noodles, sauce to taste, and vegetables.  Sprinkle with sesame seeds if desired.  Serve warm or cold.

If you have a peanut allergy, or just don't like it, Gena of Choosing Raw just put up a version made with only sesame.
