- Mix dressing.
- Cook linguine in plenty of salted water. Drain but don’t rinse.
- Toss linguine with dressing. Drain excess sauce.
- Garnish with scallions.
NOTE: This makes a tangy side dish, good for a cold meal, BBQ or picnic. You can mix the dressing ahead of time and keep in the fridge indefinitely. Be sure to use the flavorful dark-colored sesame oil not the light-colored sesame oil which is designed to be used in cooking. Since the noodles are hot when dressed they will absorb the dressing quickly so don’t let it sit more than an hour, then drain so it doesn’t get soggy.
