Ingredients

    One 14 oz package yakisoba noodles ( these will be in the redrigerated part of the store and if you can't find them( or don't have an asian market near you- you can substitute one of the fresh angelhair or spaghetti like Buitoni)
    3 Tablespoons olive oil

    FOR THE SAUCE
    1/3 cup ginger chili sauce. Again- look for it at an asian market or on most groceries- ROland and Thai Kitchen make good brands...or you can go to Chili's and order their ginger chili dipping sauce (you'll need four 2oz ramekins) Most of the time- they will just give it to you.
    1/4 cup smooth peanut butter
    1/4 cup fresh lime juice ( 1-2 limes)
    2 teas grated lime zest ( or the zesy from one lime- more is OK)

    FOR THE VEGGIES
    4 radishes- sliced thinly
    1/2 cup mint leaves- thinly slices
    1/2 cup Thai basil leaves- thinly sliced ( or 1/3 cup regular basil as it is stronger tasting)
    1 cup packaged shredded carrots
    2 scallions/green onions- thinly slices( both green and white parts)

    One 2 Lb Bag large, thawed shrimp ( peeled and deveined) you should have about 20-24oz actual shrimp when peeled)
    1 Tablespoon Oil

    *** Optional - chopped roasted peanuts as a garnish( not counted in calorie counts



Tips

ANy salad with Thai veggies like Red pepper, red onion, cucumbers, tomatoes

and fruits like mango, or mandarin oranges would work,
