"I made this improvising with what I had on hand: low fat mayo, light sour cream, frozen peas instead of snow peas. I also added wasabi powder and more sauce, ginger and pepper. I did not use the full amount of macaroni. The dressing was really thick so I thinned it a little with skim milk. Good flavor and perfect side for Grilled Tuna Rolls."

"This is a great salad, however I thought it needed more flavor so I added half a tube of wasabi and a half a bag of shrimp. I brought this dish to a pot luck and everyone wanted the recipe"

"Great salad except it needed more flavor. I added more soy sauce and ginger. I also added some water chestnuts to give it a little

asian crunch."
