Cold Sesame Noodles

I first had these at a little lunch counter in the building that I worked in. They were very popular and my absolute favorite! The woman who owned the lunch counter also had a catering company and when I went to work for her during the holidays I asked for the recipe and she gave it to me! :) Now I can have them anytime and they are great to keep in the fridge for a quick something or to take to a barbecue or potluck. I promise they will be well recieved!
