Healthy, Flavorful & Delicious!

 

Asian-Chicken-Pasta-Salad

In the past five years, as I have self-published this series of cookbooks, I have
traveled to Hong Kong many, many times, to press check my books. This
recipe is one that I tried to recreate after I had it in a small little restaurant
in mainland China. I was visiting a factory that makes all of my hard cover
books by hand, and had a dish that tasted something like this. I loved it!

This salad is filled with such delicious ingredients that compliment each
other. It is one of those salads that can be served with the noodles hot, or
chilled. You can also heat the dressing, then it suddenly turns into a warm
meal. But every bite is filled with flavors that tastes so good together.

Try it, you are going to love it!
