“A refreshing light pasta salad with a delicious Asian flair. Great for a summer cookout or picnic. Tastes great right away, and even better if you can allow it to marinate for a while.” - by ohines
Original recipe yields 10 servings
- Heat a skillet over medium-high heat. Add sesame seeds, and cook stirring frequently until lightly toasted. Remove from heat, and set aside.
- Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta, and cook for 8 to 10 minutes, or until al dente. Drain pasta, and rinse under cold water until cool. Transfer to a large bowl.
- In a jar with a tight-fitting lid, combine vegetable oil, soy sauce, vinegar, sesame oil, sugar, sesame seeds, ginger, and pepper. Shake well.
- Pour sesame dressing over pasta, and toss to coat evenly. Gently mix in chicken, cilantro, and green onions.

"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 *mak..." See morees* 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."
"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- real..." See morely 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!!"
