Sesame Spaghetti Salad

Total Time
Prep 20 mins
Cook 5 mins

This recipe was given to me by a dear friends mother when I first got married. It has an excellent Asian flair because of the soy and sesame oil. It is a wonderful cold side dish, or a great light lunch. People always ask me to bring it to gatherings.

This salad has lots of positives. It is laden with vegetables, brightly colored, and has a very light & fresh taste. I made a reduced amount to sample the salad & next time would do a few things differently, but they are strictly personal preference. Others may love the clean taste just as written. I would substitute some of the vegetables with others, possibly green or red onion and red peppers. I would also reduce the oil. It would lower the calories & still have enough to coat the salad. Thank you for sharing your recipe!
