Great asian fusion salad. I didn't use reduced sodium soy sauce, but the best soy sauce I've come across, Kimlan. Substituted frozen brocolli florets, thawed and microwaved 5 minutes--we are not fans of crunchy veggies. Used fresh shrimp, then boiled for 2.5 minutes. Added a little more hot sauce to the vinaigrette--we LOVE this. Salad turned out darker than shown due to the soy sauce I used. Pasta blended nicely with the slightly salty zing of the vinaigrette. Artichokes were a nice touch, with their almost 'meaty' texture. Toasted sesame seeds were a nice ending.
