Omg yum...the sauce in this recipe sounds like it would be an explosion of flavor and using peanut butter will give it a touch of nuttiness that should complement the vegetables nicely. Ramen noodles are yummy but, I've recently just started getting familiar with my vegetable spiralizer and am now in love with zucchini noodles (or zoodles as they call them, lol)...which would be amazing with this sauce.

Such an unusual list of ingredients but really delicious nonetheless. I would never have thought peanut butter with orange and lemon juice could taste good but it sure does. It is a lovely way to eat my favorite vegetable, broccoli, and it made a really great light lunch for the family over the weekend. We enjoyed it enough to definitely save the recipe for the future.

What an interesting combination of flavors! Until a few years ago I had never really encountered using peanut butter in non-cookie/cake cooking, but now I'm discovering it in quite a variety of dishes. We always have packages of ramen noodles around, so this is an easy recipe to prepare for us. I might add a little bit of chopped tomato as a garnish to the salad, but it's quite tasty as is.

I love all of the fresh and healthy ingredients in this salad! I love the flavors of the soy sauce and peanut butter for the sauce! And it is also very budget friendly with the ramen noodles and basic pantry items. I will definitely be making this recipe again soon. Great crunch to it too, with the broccoli!

I have never heard of using peanut butter in a pasta recipe. I love the mix of flavors, especially the citrus. I think that my family would love this as a side or a main dish for lunch. We love broccoli, but I can never find enough recipes to use it in. Thanks for posting!

I love the sauce. Its very flavorful i bet. I always go for simple pasta recipes with tomato sauces but this has been my first no tomato sauce recipe. still waiting on the amount of orange juice .

The recipe calls for 1/2 "each" orange juice. Is this suppose to be 1/ cup? I rated 3 stars altho I haven't made it yet. Will wait for an answer to my question.
