    dh loved this salad! being the end of summer, i was tired of making the same old thing: macaroni salad or italian pasta salad. this has a great asian flavor. i did read the reviews and so added/omitted some things: i added more noodles by half (so glad i did; but also increased the sauce by half as well, glad i did this, too), added 3/4 tsp red pepper flakes instead of the hot sauce (great flavor, but spicy, maybe use less), and added approx 1/2 tsp ground ginger. i didn't blanch or steam the veggies, as others suggested; but instead stir-fried the veggies (it's an asian salad...right?!) and loved that. finally, i think i might try crushed peanuts instead of sesame seeds next time. i think it would add a great flavor (where the sesame seeds did not add much).

    I really enjoyed the Asian flavor of this salad, I made this salad with Ingredients that I had on hand. Frozen broccoli and spinach that I blanched first, yellow onions and minced garlic that I Sautéed first and used only a ?pinch? of grated ginger no sesame seeds and I will increase the amount of lemon and tomatoes next time. Most of other reviews said to increase the amount of dressing which I will do also next time. I generally use recipes as a guide and this one is no exception, thanks for posting I will do this salad again.

    Very delicious and healthy salad. Great for using leftover noodles as well. I doubled the sauce just to really bring out the flavors of your wonderful dressing. Will be making this again soon.

    I didn't have any sesame seeds, and subbed 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper for the hot sauce, and this was hands-down the best pasta salad I've ever had. The extra zing in the dressubg even got many of the family members to eat broccoli! I may reduce the amount of veggies by a quarter next time, though, because the pasta lovers were put off by how little of it there was in comparison.

    Very nice flavor combination. I think I liked this better than my guest did. I made as directed except used whole wheat spaghetti in place of the linguine because that is what I had. I served this with recipe #68955, which surprisingly went very well together. I may make a little more dressing next time. I made the dressing and let it sit for about 4 hours before serving. Thanks

    I reallly loved the flavors of this salad, which get better after a day or two. I used angel hair pasta (a personal preference), chopped tomatoes (what I had) and olive oil in place of the sesame oil. I will make this again. Thanks for posting Lauralie. Sue
