Oriental Spaghetti Salad

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Mirj

This is different from most of these kinds of salads because it uses fresh peanuts instead of peanut butter.

Top Review by Anu

Had this in my brown bag for lunch today, and was absolutely out of this world!! The overnight refrigeration, crunch of the peanuts, and cilantro made this one awesome salad. You can also try this will walnuts or slivered almonds, and add some blanced corn kernels to make this a complete meal, accompanied with garlic bread.
