  • 1 cup carrots grated
  • 1 cup cucumber chopped

  3. In a large mixing bowl add shredded cabbage, carrots, chopped cucumber, and onions. Add cooked pasta.
  4. Prepare peanut sauce in a small bowl by whisking together peanut butter, water, rice vinegar, tamari, maple syrup, sesame oil, garlic and cayenne.
  5. Pour peanut sauce over pasta salad and mix gently to combine. Sprinkle with green onion, peanuts, and cilantro. Mix again.
