- In a large pot, bring water to a boil. Break noodles in halves or thirds and drop them into the water. Cook for 6 to 7 minutes and test for doneness. When done, drain immediately and rinse with very cold water. Set aside.

- Blend all remaining ingredients together in a food processor, or use a fork to mix thoroughly in a bowl.
