•    1½ tablespoons rice wine vinegar
•    1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
•    1 tablespoon canola oil
•    1½ tablespoons minced garlic
•    1½ tablespoons minced fresh ginger
•    6 cups mixed cut raw stir-fry vegetables (broccoli, bok choy, zucchini, onion, red bell peppers, carrots)
•    3 cups cooked udon noodles
•    ¼ cup freshly chopped basil leaves
