A refreshing change from the normal pasta salads. This one is packed with light flavours and perfect for summer picnics or a light lunch to bring to work.

This is my favorite recipe that I have found at allrecipes.com - I fell in love with it when I was making (and tasting) the sauce! The sauce is AMAZING and so delicious, really to die for, and it *makes* the dish. The sauce is the perfect combination of sweet and salty, aromatic and delightful. I make this in huge batches and I add cherry tomatoes, blanched snap peas, baby carrots, and celery. We eat it as the main course, and we have yummy leftovers for the day after. I have made this recipe over and over again. - 12 Dec 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I've received many compliments on this recipe, having served it a few times. I would only alter a few things: add julienned carrots, sliced water chestnuts and pea pods cut in half on an angle- really adds nice color, texture and flavor. Knock oil down to 1/3 cup otherwise it is REALLY oily. I use fettucine noddles. If you are making this ahead and chilling it (which I would recommend), add half of the dressing while noodles are still warm and will soak up flavor. MMM! Toss the other half of the dressing before serving. I like it warm OR cold, but feel it is better cold. Still great the next day. Will make again and again!! - 20 Aug 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
