Introduction

This is a delicious and vitamin packed pasta salad. A great summer dish that I often take to picnics. People always ask for this recipe and even my teenagers love it.

    Really tasty and easy. I added broccoli slaw, red cabbage and more red pepper and peanut butter than recipe calls for, though. Really good! - 6/28/11

  • I liked it as is and my honey liked it too and he doesn't like Asian food. But I think it needs more peanut flavor so will add more next time. Could use more veggies too so will try adding broccoli slaw too. I think I'll try rice wine vinegar for more authenticity. - 2/13/15

  • OK this was just YUM-OH! I'm bringing it to work tomorrow for a Chinese Pot Luck we are having. I added a bag of brocolli slaw, sliced red pepper and scallions for the veggies. I also increased the dressing, used balsamic vinigar and bottled hot sause VS. using white vinager & red pepper flakes. - 9/22/11
