"Pasta salads can have a variety of textures and tastes. The flavours of Thailand are showcased in this tangy dressing. Crisp vegetables and tender linguine pasta fill the pasta bowl to enhance any potluck or picnic. From Emily Richardson at Food and Drink"

"Yummy and fresh-tasting. A great complement to some salmon we were having for dinner. Great textures and flavours happening in every forkful. A keeper - thanks."
"This is so yummy. We loved how fresh it is. Great dish for a hot day. I omitted the mint only because I didn't have any. Delicious. This is a keeper. Thanks for posting. :)"
"So good! Subbed crab for shrimp. Next time I think I'll try a more dainty pasta, like an angel hair, to absorb more sauce. Thanks!"
"This was a fresh tasting summer salad, chock full of nice veggies. We enjoyed this for lunch today. Thanks! Made for ZWT6."
"Oh, tasty and refreshing! We really enjoyed this salad. This has all the asian flavors I adore. I added some lime zest to the dressing to boost the lime flavor."
"This is a five star dish. However I omitted the bean sprouts and put jalpeno for the red pepper and used cilantro, basil and mint. I did use thin spaghetti. Thanks for such a great summer dish."
"This was very yummy. I am not a fan of pasta salad in general but I enjoy cold Asian noodle dishes... basically a pasta salad, right? I used medium-sized frozen, peeled and deveined shrimp that I simply thawed and then sauted in some olive oil. In place of linguine I used spaghetti and omitted the bean sprouts since I'm not a huge fan. I also used the optional coriander (cilantro) since I quite enjoy that flavor. Otherwise I followed the recipe to the letter. I found this very fresh tasting with the fresh herbs and veggies, along with the slightly spicy and tangy dressing and the sweet and buttery shrimp. I made enough to take with me to work tomorrow and it will be a nice change of pace from the usual lunchtime fare. Made for ZWT 4."
"WOW so yummy! I made this from a recommendation by one of the other reviewers and it was truly wonderful. It was made for my father in laws birthday party/New Years eve party and everyone really enjoyed it. I had trouble finding linguine so I used fettuccini otherwise kept everything the same, I even used the optional coriander. Thank you ~Leslie~"
"Love the simplicity! And that this is SO good for me! Has a Christmas feel, colourful, like my personality! This is a definate keeper for me!"
"What a lovely dinner for a warm Spring evening. I broke my fettuccini into 3" pieces before cooking to make it easier to eat. I also sprinkled fried shallots over the top before serving for a little added crunch. DELIGHTFUL!! Thanks for sharing, reviewed for the Aussie recipe swap #10."
