I spotted this during recipe gathering for ZWT and it appealed to me. I made it for Sunday brunch to serve with a quiche and fresh fruit salad. I thought it had a colorful presentation which is always a plus for me. I used preshredded carrots and sprinkled the top with black sesame seeds. The dressing was made as directed and made enough to leave the macaroni well coated. Thank you for sharing the recipe!
This was an excellent Asian style pasta salad! If you like a saucier macaroni salad, I would double the dressing. Instead of using the ground ginger, I used 1/2 to 1 cup of small diced fresh ginger which made the salad! Next time I'll also use a garlic clove, finely minced.
What a wonderfully different Pasta Salad! I used fresh ginger, and used low fat mayo and no fat sour cream. Increased the red wine vinegar a bit too. I used the snow peas, but think it would be just as good with some small broccoli flowerets or regular english peas. Thanks for sharing!
We really enjoyed this salad. A great combination of creamy and crunchy, with good flavor. Thanks for sharing the recipe. ZWT6.
This is so yummy. At the end of cooking the pasta, I added the snow peas maybe just for 1 minute. I used light mayonnaise, fatfree sour cream. It's creamy a lot and I like it that way. Thanks diner :) Made for Potluck tag
Great salad. Made for New Kids on the Block.
This salad turned out really good! So healthy and easier to feed my family than a salad with lettace. ;) I steamed the vegetables in the microwave for a few minutes before adding them to the pasta to get them slightly cooked, and use one cup of Vegenaise instead of the mayo and sour cream. I make this pasta salad for my family all the time now! Thanks!!! Made 1st for 1-2-3 Zaar Tag.
This is very good and so easy to prepare. I thought it could use just a bit more flavour, however. Next time I'd use fresh ginger and add some garlic and perhaps also increase the red wine vinegar & soy sauce as suggested by previous reviewers. Made for Potluck Tag.
This is a nice change for macaroni salad. In our family we either loved or hated the snow peas. :) It was yummy as is, but I think the next time I make this, and I will make it again *grins*, I will blanch the veggies, as they were a little raw for us, and maybe amp up the dressing a little with some fresh ginger and garlic. And the serving size is wrong, it made just enough for 4 adults and 2 kids! :) Thank you for posting, made for ZWT4.
This is a delicious aisian inspired pasta salad. I really loved the snow peas (I used sugar snap peas) in this salad. The dressing was great, but I would have prefered just a bit more red wine vinegar and soy sauce to mayo/sr.cream. This was delicious after a night of sitting in the fridge. The amount of dressing to salad was perfect. ZWT 4
