Ina’s Szechuan Dressing for noodle salad

This is a wonderful dressing to make for a pasta salad or as a sauce for vegetables-hot or cold or even for a lettuce salad. I made the szechuan noodles with chicken and broccoli with last night’s leftover roasted chicken. The dressing comes together quickly once you have gotten out all of the ingredients! This is enough dressing and more for one pound of pasta.

Szechuan dressing

6 garlic cloves

1/4 c. fresh ginger, peeled and chopped

1/2 c. vegetable oil

1/2 c. tahini

1/2 c. peanut butter, smooth

1/2 c. good soy sauce

1/4 c. dry sherry

1/4 c. sherry vinegar

1/4 c. honey

1/2 t. Asian hot chili oil

1/8 t. cayenne pepper

Chop garlic and ginger in food processor. Add remaining ingredients and puree until smooth.
