Spaghetti? Really?

Ok, so this should not be made with spaghetti. I really don't understand why the author of this recipe would suggest it. Soba noodles are the right noodle for this recipe.

Also there needs to be some more green in this. The carb-to-veggie ratio is pretty terrible. I'm thinking of maybe adding some chinese cabbage

Once you switch out the spaghetti for soba this is a pretty nice recipe. It still needs some tweaking though.

simple but good

In addition to the garlic and ginger, I added a touch of honey and lime juice (as well as the rice wine vinegar) to the dressing as I found it a bit unbalanced. Also a thinly sliced red chili pepper added a bit extra zing. Hubby liked it and it will go on the "rotation".

clean taste, easy to prepare

I Liked It...but would make some changes.

The only thing I did differently the first time around was boiled the snow peas for maybe two minutes. Then I drained them and ran them under cold water. I don't like mine raw.

Next time I would give the noodles longer to drain so that they don't water down the dressing. I would use more scallions as well. I thought it was tasty but I might try adding the ginger and garlic to the dressing someone else suggested.

Perfect summer salad. Light, cold, and tasty

De-Lish!

Instead of eating the veggies raw, we decided to saute them in a very small amount of olive oil. We added the noodles, the whisked mix, and toasted sesame seeds to the veggies in the pan. Mmm Mmm Good! We paired this dish with Artisan Fresh Herb & Garlic Focaccia Pull Apart Bread. The entire family was happy :)
