Be sure to use "seasoned rice vinegar". I used unseasoned..at first..then added seasoned instead..luckily it came out good.

Wonderful and easy to make. I also used whole wheat pasta and it added even more flavor. I would suggest serving it the same day you toss in the dressing. I made it the night before and the pasta soaked up a lot of the sauce...a little dry but still very tasty :)

Awesome pasta salad! Always a hit when I take it to a potluck! I make it with whole wheat pasta and no one knows because the sauce is brownish due to the peanut butter. Even the kids love it!
