      This salad is killer! Talk about a flavor explosion for the taste buds. I had everything on hand except for the dried chilies, so I added some dried chili flakes. I also added a few dashes of fish sauce. I had an array of salads on the table and this was gone in an instance. I let it sit out on the counter for about 10 minutes or so before serving. The flavors were more pronounced chilled rather then ice cold. I garnished with some cilantro, chopped peanuts, and lime wedges. This received many compliments and requests for the recipe. Great Salad Abby Girl, thanks for posting!!

      Wow! Fantastic pasta salad! The flavor was delightfully complex and not a single element was overpowering. (I confess that I didn't have dried chilies; I used a small bit of cayenne pepper as a substitution.) A real treat that everyone who tasted it loved. Thanks for this excellent recipe!
