Sesame Zucchini Noodles

As I have mentioned before, the Paleo lifestyle has made me fall head over heels for zucchini noodles. First it was The Clothes Make the Girl's Comfort Noodles, then my own take on pesto zucchini "pasta."

oh, how I love my mandolin...
Today for lunch I whipped up a quickie bowl of Sesame Noodles. I made the recipe exactly as written, except for using coconut aminos in lieu of shoya (soy). I don't find raw meals truly satisfying at dinnertime, but for lunch (especially in warmer weather) I find them very refreshing.

I really loved the combination of the tahini and almond butter in the sauce; for some reason my noodles came out looking NOTHING like the photo accompanying the recipe, but I considered them a success nonetheless.
