Sesame Pasta Chicken Salad
LOVED this recipe! Took it to a potluck dinner and the bowl was EMPTY. Everyone asked me for the recipe! Luckily I saved a portion for myself for lunch today, and it was great even 2 days after preparation.
I made a few changes, based on reading the reviews (and I'm glad I did - the dish was DELICIOUS!)
I reduced the oil to 1/3 cup and I used peanut oil. I also added 1/2 teaspoon of garlic salt, 2 tablespoons of fresh lime juice, and red pepper flakes for a little kick. I stirred in a finely chopped red pepper for crunch and flavor. I also took the recommendation to use half the dressing on the pasta the night of preparation, and then stire in the other half right before serving. I gave the pasta one last squeeze of fresh lime juice right before serving - really brightened it up. I didn't use any cilantro because I hate the stuff.
Amazing results! Tangy, sweet/sour, great flavors. I will definitely be making this one again!
