Asian Inspired Spaghetti Salad

We’ve taken a whole new approach to pasta salad, swapping out Italian flavors for a fusion of sweet and savory Asian elements. Shredded cabbage, carrots, and edamame are nestled among strands of perfectly cooked spaghetti, then coated in a scrumptious sesame orange dressing. You’ll have oodles of fork-twirling goodness for a packable lunch or light dinner. We dare you to change up your pasta routine!

  • Add Protein. Make it hearty by adding cooked chicken, cubed tofu, or shrimp.
  • Make it Even Healthier. This is one healthy pasta dish, but adding steamed broccoli, cooked asparagus, snap peas, or shredded kale will up the health factor even more!
  • Give it a Mexican Twist. Omit the sesame oil and swap out the Orange Poppy Dressing for Private Selection™ Fire Roasted Poblano Ranch. Replace the cucumber and edamame with a sliced red bell pepper for a tasty south-of-the-border salad.
