I was in a need of a quick easy recipe for a BBQ and this did the trick. I couldn't find the Kraft dressing in my grocery store so I subbed with the Newman's Own as did the other reviewers. The recipe is easy to build upon and adjust to your tastes. I don't like to bite into big chunks of garlic so I grated two cloves right into the dressing along with grated fresh ginger. I also doubled the amount of dressing, scallions, ginger, and garlic because because I almost doubled the volume of the salad by adding added extra veggies (edamame, broccoli slaw, and shredded carrots), cooked cubed chicken breast, and some toasted cashews. This was delicious and easy. I even scooped out a little container's worth to leave at home to enjoy later after the picnic. Will definitely make this again. I might try adding fruit like madarin orange sections or pineapple chunks next time for a different twist. Thanks for the recipe.
What a nice change for pasta salad. I used 8 oz. of spaghetti, broken in half for easier eating, but kept the other ingredients the same and doubled the carrot for a little more vegetable. I used 1/2 t. chili pepper flakes and Newman's Own Low Fat Sesame Ginger dressing. I forgot the ginger but will try to remember that next time! Sprinkled some sesame seeds on top for a little crunch and extra flavor. Thank you!
Great recipe! It was a hot night and we wanted something light and this was perfect! I used Newmans Low Fat Sesame Ginger Dressing which someone suggested and it was great. I didn't have fresh ginger so I used ground ginger. Everyone enjoyed this. Thanks for a great recipe.
