Asian Pasta Salad

A refreshing pasta salad is perfect for a Summer potluck, I keep most of these ingredients on hand for a easy side dish. Easy way to get kids to eating vegetables

6 tablespoons soy sauce
4 tablespoons sugar
3 tablespoons rice vinegar
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds
2 teaspoons sweet chili sauce
1 teaspoon sambal olek chili sauce
1 teaspoon olive oil
2 chopped green onions
1 cup diced califlower
2 carrots, peeled and julienned
1/2 chopped bell pepper
1/2 lb spaghetti or linguine pasta, cooked al dente
Season with freshly crushed black pepper

1. Strain pasta and run cold water until pasta is cool, toss in olive oil to prevent sticking.

2. In a medium-sized bowl whisk soy sauce,sugar, rice vinegar, sesame oil, sesame seeds, and chili sauce; whisk until sugar is dissolved.

3. Toss pasta in the sauce and vegetables, let marinate for at least 30 minutes in the refrigerator but can also be left overnight for more flavor, toss again before serving and serve cold.
