I had to downsize to two servings. This was different and delicious. I mixed the salad ingredients and refrigerated until ready to add the dressing. I let it sit at room temp for about 1 hour before serving....very good...will make again.

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!

We made this for Easter lunch to accomodate the vegetarians in our family and it was delicious! Leftovers kept well and I enjoyed it for lunch at work!
