  1. In a large bowl, whisk together peanut butter, soy sauce, vinegar, brown sugar, garlic, ginger, salt, vegetable oil, sesame oil and chili oil; until well blended.
  2. Bring a large pot of water to boil over high heat. Add Mann's Broccoli Wokly. When water returns to a full boil, remove broccoli with a slotted spoon and rinse in a colander under cold running water. Set aside to drain.
  3. In the same large pot, once again bring water to boil. Add vermicelli and cook until just tender, 6 to 8 minutes (or as package directs). Drain vermicelli in a colander and rinse under cold running water; drain again. Add to the peanut butter mixture, stirring and tossing to coat well. Gently stir in broccoli, bell pepper and green onions. Sprinkle with sesame seeds. Serve cold or at room temperature.

I took to this dish to a party and had no leftovers. I used fresh steamed broccoli instead of Mann's Broccoli Wokly and chopped peanuts instead of seasame seeds. I will definitely make this again.

Pretty good, but very salty. Next time I would skip the extra salt and use low-sodium soy sauce. Also, 1 lb of pasta is way too much. I'd recommend more like 1/2 lb.

Excellent! I made for friends that were visiting from Canada and they had to make sure they went home with the recipe. The only thing I did differently was to blanch the red pepper with the broccoli. My grown children LOVE it. Thank you!

This was very good. I love red bell pepper so I might put a little more in next time. Could be great for an office pot luck.

This is a wonderful recipe that I've been meaning to rate for a long time. I make it exactly as written, usually serving it with Asian salmon from this site. It's healthy, easy, and delicious. Anyone who likes cold sesaame noodles from a Chinese restaurant should like this.

These noodles were a huge hit with hubby and kids! Sauce was a tad thick, so I'll probably add a little extra soy sauce or a bit less peanut butter next time.

My first time making cold sesame noodles at home... yum! I used 1T less peanut butter (based on reviews) and sprinkled each serving with a little extra soy (low sodium, of course) and sesame oil. Even my husband liked this side! Makes TONS!

This dish was okay. My parents thought it had too much sauce and that the peanut butter taste was too strong. I would suggest putting less peanut butter, maybe a tablespoon less than recommended. I actually like peanut butter but it was a little too much for me. The recipe has a strong flavor. I don't think I'll make this again.
