  1. In a jar with a tight fitting lid, combine the garlic, ginger, soy sauce, rice vinegar, peanut oil, sesame oil and hot pepper sauce. Close the lid, and shake vigorously to blend. Set aside to let the flavors blend.
  2. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add udon noodles, and cook until tender, about 3 minutes. Drain, and place in a serving bowl.
  3. In a microwave-safe bowl, combine the green, red, and yellow peppers with green onion and peas. Heat in the microwave until warm, but still crisp. Add to the noodles in the bowl, and pour the dressing over all. Toss to coat everything in dressing, then sprinkle toasted sesame seeds over the top.

Delicious! The dressing is very good. You can easily adjust the veggies to suit your tastes. I cut back on the snap peas and added some carrots that I cut into match sticks. Overall, very tasty - great side dish!

I doubled everything except the dressing and it was still too oily.

These were wonderful. I needed to find a recipe I could use Udon noodles with. After doing a search, this came up. I added red, green and yellow peppers and sesame seeds to garnish. My family (who is very picky) ate it all up!

YUM! I used peapods instead of snap peas (bought the wrong ones) ,added about 1/3 of a large cucumber cut into thin matchstick pieces and some shredded carrot. Guess you could really use any vegetables that you would put into a stirfry. Next time I will add some leftover chicken or shrimp. Thanks for the recipe, Baja!

Both Hubs and I agree these are exceptional and 5-star good. BUT....use the dressing to taste! I only used half of what I made and it was plenty. Other than eliminating the snap peas I stuck to the recipe and it's just as pretty as it is delicious. I just love the flavor of sesame oil!

Teriyaki chicken was on the dinner menu and was looking for a starch to replace the rice I had planned on serving. Happened upon this recipe and thought I'd give it a whirl... WOW, am so glad I did. HELPFUL HINT: As with any recipe that calls for dressing, always add to taste. This recipe definitely falls under this rule otherwise the noodles will be too oily as others have noted in their reviews. Overall 5 star. Thank you bajathecat for the submission!

Very good cold from the fridge after marinating in juices. Used whole grain Udon. Changes: Replaced rice vinegar with white vinegar.

This was good, was looking for recipes to use udon noodles. Loved the dressing, sesame oil was too expensive at my store so i didn't use it. I agree with others that you can use what ever veggies you like. I also added napa cabbage and mushrooms. I don't think iv'e ever used fresh ginger but boy it was good in this.
