    Ridgely's Note:

    A nice Asian Pasta salad. It is always fun to bring a "different" kind of salad to a gathering. From Paula Deen.

      Good idea but needed some garlic and ginger. Was pretty bland even though I added red pepper flakes. Served with Baked Pot Stickers- Sweet Asian Dipping Sauce - Chicken Egg Roll.

      This dish is off the charts! It's so easy to make and you can use whatever is in the pantry. I picked up a rotisserie chicken and diced it all up. As for the dressing, I prefer a stronger flavour and doubled the rice wine vinegar, soy sauce and hoisin and added 4 packets of Splenda to the mixture. I love the idea of adding a bit of sesame oil to the dressing and will do that next time. I forgot to pick up the sugar snap peas, and used broccoli florets, instead. Next time, I'm going to add some finely chopped Serrano or Cayenne peppers for a bit of a kick. I served this over a bed of torn Romaine and it was delish and paired it with a crisp Voignier. It made for a lovely meal. Thank you for posting this recipe!

      This makes a refreshing change from the usual pasta salads! With the quantities quartered, I served the 2 of us a main course with just enough leftovers for my lunch. Aside from adding a couple of drops of Sesame oil, I made no changes to the dressing; it was delicious. I made some substitutions, based on availability - red & yellow peppers and frozen baby peas, which made the salad quite colourful. Thanx for posting!
