These cold noodles are inspired by bold Chinese Sichuan flavors – savory, spicy and aromatic with the acidity of Chinese black vinegar. I love noodles whether in the form of noodle soup, stir-fry and of course cold noodles.

How to make these Sichuan style cold noodles

  • For the dressing, mix everything together in a bowl. Feel free to adapt to your taste. Set aside.
  • Cook the noodles until still very chewy. Drain the noodles from the water. Run the noodles through cold running water. Set aside in a strainer to drain any excess water.
  • You can sprinkle some oil on the noodles and then mix well to coat the noodles. This is to prevent the noodles from sticking together.
  • In a large bowl, add the cooled noodles.
  • Add your toppings and favorite mix-ins. Pour over the dressing.
