My friend Tammy always makes this salad for her parties. It's so easy to make. Make the dressing a day ahead if you can it's better that way. You can also add cooked chicken if you want to make it a main meal. YUMMY!

Made this just as written but used 8 oz. Barilla Plus multi-grain angel hair pasta instead of a pound. Also added half a cup of chopped cilantro leaves and a large peeled and shredded carrot in addition to the sesame seeds and chopped green onions. Very nice and so easy. I always have these ingredients in the house, so I'll make this again.

I couldn't find vermicelli, so I substituted angel hair pasta. I planned on adding shredded leftover rotisserie chicken and shredded carrot, but felt that the dressing didn't seem adequate in quantity for just the pasta alone. I ended up adding more sesame oil and about 3 t. or so of hot chili oil. It was pretty good but, next time, I think I will cut back on the pasta. Made for 1-2-3 Hit Wonders Tag Game.

This is a great dressing for cold noodle salad. I add shredded carrot, ginger, broccoli and cauliflower, and some fried pork mince to bulk it up to make a full meal. Very nice and very easy.
