Introduction

Although there are a lot of ingredients, this could not be simpler. Just boil the water while preparing the dressing, And cut up veggies while the pasta is cooking. In no time you have a delicious meal.

I found this on allrecipes.com as Chicken Noodle Salad with Peanut-Ginger Dressing. I tweaked this recipe to my taste as I would not be able to eat fresh ginger and red pepper flakes to the mix. It would have been way to spicy. You can make it vegetarian by omitting the chicken and adding tofu if you wish. Great for when you have a crowd.

You could add edamame or cauliflower to the mix. Any veggies you prefer.

This is excellent with warm pasta and chicken.
