  1. Teresa I always enjoy your recipe and this tasty tasty dish is no exception. I am trying to eat more salad. With recipes like this it won't be a hardship. Made as written and wouldn't change a thing. Loved the fresh raw vegetables and the delicious mayo. I'll be enjoying this often this summer. Thanks so much for sharing, made for Went to Market tag game 2017.
  2. I used frozen stir fry veggies and the them in the boiling noodle water for the last 3 minutes. Could have been a little spicier.
  3. This is a great recipe and I was able to put it together very quickly by cutting up all the veggies while I was waiting for the water to come to a boil and the pasta to cook. It says that the sauce is a Dijon Chili Mayo but I can't imagine adding Dijon to this (it wasn't listed in the ingredients) - it sure doesn't need it! I actually used 1/3 the suggested amount of mayo (low fat) and it was perfect for us. Give this colourful salad a try - it's delicious! Made for PRMR. Thanks TeresaS! :)
