Thai Pasta Salad

Just wanted to share a simple, easy, and VERY tasty recipe I tried recently. :)

Thai Pasta Salad (adapted from TastyGalaxy's Pasta Salad with Peanut Sauce)

  • 1/2 pound of spaghetti
  • about a cup of chopped carrots
  • 2 or 3 scallions, chopped
  • a big handful of cilantro
  • 1/4 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 1 tbsp vinegar
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 1 or 2 tsp fresh ginger, grated (optional)
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped (optional)
  • toasted sesame seeds (optional)
  1. Cook the pasta according to package directions.
  2. While pasta is cooking, in a small bowl, mix together the peanut butter, vinegar, soy sauce, water, ginger, and garlic.
  3. Drain pasta and rinse with cold water. Drain again, very well.
  4. In a big bowl, combine the pasta, carrots, and scallions.  Mix in the peanut sauce.  Add the cilantro and toss.  Top with sesame seeds.

This was really really good cold, but I think it would also work if you served it warm.

There are not many things I love more than recipes that are as easy as they are yummy.
