2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
1 tablespoons honey

1 red bell pepper, stemmed, seeded and thinly sliced
2 carrots, peeled and thinly sliced
1/2 cup thinly sliced red onion
1 cup chow mein noodles
2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds

  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the vinegar, soy sauce, sesame oil, peanut butter, honey and chili garlic sauce for the dressing. Set aside.
