  • 1½ teaspoons sambal oelek
  • 3 scallions, green parts only, thinly sliced, plus more for serving
  • 1 3-inch piece ginger, peeled, cut into 1-inch matchsticks
  • 1 garlic clove, thinly sliced
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt, plus more
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, plus more
  • ½ cup sherry vinegar or red wine vinegar, divided

Sambal oelek is an Asian ingredient made with chiles, vinegar and a little salt and just a small bit of this tasty sauce takes this cold noodle dish to flavor heights you won’t want to miss. While the flavors need a little time to meld together and permeate the noodles, the working time on this recipe is super short.

Whisk sambal oelek, scallions, ginger, sliced garlic, 1 tsp. salt, ¼ tsp. pepper, and vinegar and oil in a large bowl. Add kale and broccoli; toss to coat. Let sit at room temperature at least 15 minutes and up to 1 hour.

Cook noodles according to package directions. Drain; rinse under cold water. Add noodles and broccoli and kale and toss to coat. Divide among bowls and top with mint, sesame seeds, and more scallions.
