Good Not Great I like this but will not make it again without taking the time to figure out what it is missing. I liked the flavor of the dressing but the other ingredients are so mild in flavor that the dressing dominated instead of highlighting or enhancing the other flavors. I think there is something that could be added to give it that needed POP. Perhaps a pop of citrus is what it needs some some mandarin segments but I think some fresh pink grapefruit segments is what I will try when I prepare this dish again. The richness and yummy fattiness of the peanut dressing needs the citrus or a similar acidic contrast. Just my thoughts. Pros: Fast Easy Fresh Light but Filling Cons: Flavor is one note quickly becomes monotonous
I loved this recipe but I changed it a bit. I only used 1/4 cup of rice vinegar added about 1 rounded tablespoon of brown sugar because it was to sour for me. Used the hot pasta water to dilute the sauce and instead of 8 ounces of pasta I used 12 ounces.
Delicious I had store bought low fat sesame ginger dressing on hand so I blended that with the chili garlic sauce and peanut butter. It came out delicious and saved a few steps. I also added shelled edamame. Will definitely make again.
Fantastic for parties and leftovers! I've made this recipe a few times now and have loved it each and every time. I've slowly made a few changes or additions rather and I love how versatile the sauce is. I've added diced Chinese eggplant some finely shredded cabbage shredded carrots and sometimes squash. I use whole grain noodles or quinoa noodles and it's amazing each time! I highly recommend trying it out! Pros: Easy filling perfect for warm weather Cons: None
Excellent for a crowd This is fantastic and everyone at three parties raved about it. I only make and use half of the dressing and added 2 tbsp brown sugar because I thought the dressing was too acidic. I will add chopped sugar snap peas next time too. Pros: Fresh and light: lots of vegetables Cons: Too much dressing
Fantastic Summer Meal! I really loved this recipe. I added some shredded carrots to it to increase the amount of veg. I halved the recipe and had enough for about 3-4 people still. The only changes I made were: adding shredded carrots to the salad grilling the chicken and I used whole wheat linguine noodles and they were perfect. I highly recommend the recipe. The leftovers are as equally delicious as well. Pros: Healthy Nutrituous Flavorful
Loved This Recipe I tried this recipe with thin linguini since I didn't have Chinese noodles. I also doubled the sriracha because I like heat. I liked it because it was different and healthy my boyfriend loved it and even ate his veggies (he's a meat guy all the way!) I made this a week ago and we ate it last Sunday for dinner. Today we had to make it again he loved it that much! Hopefully there will be leftovers! Pros: delicious easy to make easy to make swaps and changes
Disappointing The recipe made too much dressing which is a waste of ingredients. We used less than half of the dressing. Unfortunately my family did not like this and I have enough left over to feed another family. Mine did not turn out like the picture despite following all directions. Pros: Easy prep Cons: Not very good
Made A Meatless Version I swapped the chicken with vegetarian chicken shreads and used gluten free spaghetti to change it up. Also half almond butter and half reduced fat peanut butter. I halved the recipe. It was very tasty and not too heavy! Pros: Easy prep Cons: none
