"Sesame Pasta Chicken Salad" is quite delicious. I made mine with gluten-free pasta. After tasting the dressing, I did need to modify it to punch it up for our well-seasoned international palates (2 tablespoons of siracha, 2 cloves of garlic, 1 teaspoon of fresh grated ginger). I used gluten-free tamari in place of the soy sauce. I also used toasted sesame oil for half of the vegetable oil in the dressing, and it did not have an overwhelming sesame flavor. Plain sesame oil is almost flavorless, so you do not get an Asian flavor. I did not add sugar because we do not like sweet food in our family. I wanted to serve this salad as a main course, but felt like it was "missing vegetables," which meant I had to make a special trip to the store for cherry tomatoes and snow peas. I loved this salad in concept, and am highly likely to make a modified version of it again because it is such a fast-and-easy make-ahead meal. Thank you ohines for sharing your recipe.
