  • 2 Tbsp. toasted sesame oil, divided
  • ⅓ cup creamy peanut butter
  • ⅓ cup rice vinegar
  • 3 Tbsp. agave syrup
  • 3 Tbsp. low-sodium soy sauce or tamari

Cook the noodles according to package directions. Rinse with cold water, drain, and toss with 1 Tbsp. sesame oil to coat. Transfer to a bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate until the noodles are cold, tossing occasionally, at least 1 hour.

In a small bowl, whisk together the peanut butter, rice vinegar, agave, soy sauce, Sriracha, garlic, and remaining 1 Tbsp. sesame oil. Pour over the noodles and toss until the noodles are evenly coated.

Add the cucumber, cabbage, lettuce, and carrot and gently mix. Garnish with the peanuts and cilantro and serve.
