I dare you to resist the combination of mayo, soy, and sesame oil! It’s weirdly addictive, as you will find when you make this pasta salad, which may be the best use of bamboo shoots in recent memory. This dish must be served cold and couldn’t be easier. If you like the sauce, double it up and use it on other stuff, too.
⅔ cup mayonnaise
¼ cup plus 1 teaspoon peanut oil
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
2 teaspoons sesame oil
⅔ box (2/3 pound) spaghetti
1 red bell pepper, seeded and diced
1 small can bamboo shoots, drained, patted dry, and cut into thin strips
1 large carrot, cut into julienne (get one of these for that or just use a box grater)
1 cup chopped fresh cilantro
Most of life’s questions can be answered with crispy shallots.
From the depths of Pepper Thai’s pantry, comes the sauce for this delicious recipe.
I'll find any excuse to serve scallops for dinner.
