Cold Noodle Salad with Pepperoni
2 green onions, ends trimmed
About 1/4 pound thinly sliced pepperoni
6 ounces dried thin noodles
Seasoning sauce (recipe follows)
Fresh cilantro sprigs
Cut onions into 3-inch section; cut lengthwise into very thin strips. Put in a small bowl and cover with cold water. Cover and chill until strands curl, at least 15 minutes or up to 1 day.
In an 8- to 10-inch frying pan over medium-high heat, stir pepperoni often just until meat begins to crisp. Drain on towels.
Bring 2 quarts water to a boil in a 3- to 4-quart pan on high heat. Add noodles and cook, uncovered, stirring occasionally, until tender-firm to bite, 8 to 12 minutes. Drain noodles; immerse in cold water until cool. Drain and mix noodles with seasoning sauce; pour onto a large platter. Drain onions and scatter over noodles, then add pepperoni and cilantro sprigs. Serves 3 or 4
Seasoning sauce. In a bowl, stir together 2 tablespoons each seasoned rice vinegar (or 2 tablespoons rice vinegar and 2 teaspoons sugar), minced fresh ginger, and minced cilantro; 1 tablespoon each lemon juice and mirin (sweet rice wine) or dry sherry; 2 teaspoons Oriental sesame oil; 1 1/2 teaspoons soy sauce ; and 1 teaspoon sugar.
