MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 10, 2013

"Loved it. Served it with a side of steam buns."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 28, 2013

"The first time I made this recipe I made it exactly as instructed. It was good, but not excellent. It is a lower calorie and healthier than most noodle salad recipe. I made it a second time and used regular angel hair pasta and I coated my chicken with corn starch and then cooked it and tossed in some sesame cooking oil and honey to coat. I replaced the red peppers with green peppers and used regular sesame salad dressing and left off the peanuts. I added toasted sesame seeds. To me, this made the dish excellent."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 19, 2013

"Excellent salad! I've made several times, both with the chicken and without to serve as a side salad with grilled chicken. I use regular thin spaghetti and add extra shredded carrots for more color and extra crunch and I prefer to Blanche the snap peas. This is a new summer staple in my house."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 21, 2013

"This was just delicious. I am not a fan of whole wheat pasta so I used the regular kind and a bottled dressing. It made what I consider a huge amount and I think it would feed six. I will make this again for family or to take to a picnic."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 13, 2013

"I love this. I made my own spicy dressing. Next time I will put only 1/2 the amount of red pepper flakes in. I cut the recipe in half, this made 4 servings for our family. I didn't have peanuts, used cashews instead."
