In my constant quest to make every food "asian", I was really excited to find this recipe. Usually pasta salads are heavy, mayo-y and lacking the veggies and kick of flavor (tons of garlic and ginger please) that I look for in a meal. This super-healthy recipe is savory yet refreshing - pair it with some chilled sake and you're good to go. I'm also a huge fan of adding lime, hot peppers (try jalapenos or whatever you have around), and peanut butter! —athaler11

Really tasty! The sauce was neither sweet nor spicy. Great way to eat noodles. Thank you!
