Szechuan Peanut-Noodle Salad

Recipe by SharleneW

A great tasting Asian flavored pasta salad. If you can't serve immediately, combine pasta and sauce and toss with the vegetables just before serving.

I loved this recipe! Instead of cucumbers I used my left over, yellow and red. I also added some red onion for an extra bite. Oh, and since I didn't have any ginger, I finely minced a small clove of garlic instead. If you like garlic like I do, it was very tasty! And because of the soy sauce, it really didn't need any more salt. GREAT DISH!
