Easy Asian Pasta Salad

This is a super easy salad to make either from scratch or from leftovers from other meals!  It's easy and perfect for hot summer days!  We just ate this on our picnic this afternoon and really enjoyed it!  :)

Easy Asian Pasta Salad:
2 c. Cooked Thin Spaghetti
1 c. Veggies (Brussel Sprouts, etc...)
1/2 c. Cooked Meat or tofu, chopped
2 T. Sesame Seeds
Asian Salad Dressing

1.  Mix together spaghetti, sesame seeds and cooked meet.
2.  Prepare veggies, and then cut into bite-size pieces.  (Wash, Peel and whatever else may be needed.  If using brussel sprouts I recommend sauteing them like this tutorial.)
3.  Mix in veggies and add dressing until it is to your desired consistency.  I used about 3 T. of dressing.  :)
4.  Refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving.  Enjoy!
 Enjoy!  You can even make this a day ahead and refrigerate until serving!  

Oh and this is the dressing I used. (and love for regular salads too!!)
I love this dressing because it's the perfect mix of sesame goodness (think Wendy's old Asian Chicken Salad) and really good ginger-ness! (think good Japanese Steakhouse's Salads) Yum!

  2. Your dish is so unique! I am curious what would it taste like. I better try this recipe using my gluten free pasta.
