Yes. I posted this on a Wednesday…. and it didn’t even occur to me that it wasn’t a Friday until today. oh dear.

We are planning to feature a recipe we like each Friday. Today, in honor of warmer weather in Minnesota, I am choosing a great pasta salad Gretchen found on and tweaked a little. 



Sesame Chicken Pasta Salad


1/4 cup sesame seeds

1 16 oz package bow tie pasta

1/2 cup vegetable oil

1/3 cup light soy sauce

1/3 cup rice vinegar

1 tsp sesame oil

3 Tbsp white sugar

1/2 tsp ground ginger

1/4 tsp black pepper

3 cups chicken, cooked and cubed

1/3 cup chopped green onion

1 cucumber, seeded and chopped

1 red pepper, diced


Heat a skillet over medium-high heat. Cook sesame seeds stirring frequently until lightly toasted. Remove from heat, and set aside. Boil pasta according to directions. Rinse until cool and transfer to bowl. Combine oils and seasonings in a container with a tight-fitting lid. Shake until mixed well. Pour dressing over pasta and vegetables. Toss to coat evenly.
