Dandan are wooden buckets, one on each end of a pole
carried across the shoulders, from which vendors used to
sell this snack in the streets of Chengdu.
1/2 pound Chinese flat wheat noodles, or linguine
2 tablespoons tahini, or peanut butter
1 tablespoon ground Szechuan red peppercorn
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 teaspoon brown sugar
2 teaspoons Chinese or white vinegar
2 teaspoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon dark sesame oil
1 tablespoon crushed roasted peanuts
Boil the noodles. Meanwhile, combine the tahini, Szechuan
pepper, garlic, sugar, vinegar, soy sauce, and sesame oil. When the
noodles are done, drain and toss them with the tahini
mixture. Sprinkle the peanuts on top before serving.
