    this is my favorite spicy pasta salad and is only limited to your imagination.

    2 cups cooked pasta of choice.

    1 cup each, peppers, green onions, cauliflower, diced

    1 teaspoon finly minced gresh ginger

    1 teaspoon finely minced fresh garlic

    1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes.

    1/2 cup oil

    '1/2 cup soy sauce

    mix well. if it is kind of dry, add more oil and soy sauce in equal amounts. Set aside to chill. It is better after acouple hours chilled.

    You can add more of the garlic and ginger and crushed red pepper to your taste. You can use what ever veg you like. For color I like to use a mix of red and yellow and green peppers when I make a big batch.

    Add diced cooked chicken for an entree type salad.

    To serve guests at a BBQ, serve with a kabob of marinated oriental flavored grilled chicken laying across the top.

    To make salad: bring large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add asparagus; cook until just tender, about 3 minutes. Drain in colander, rinse with cold water until cool, and then drain again. Repeat with beans, cooking about 1 minute before draining.

    In large bowl, combine greens, pistachios, asparagus, and beans. Add vinaigrette and toss.

    Aside from the regular lettuce, tomato, cucumbers ... I add carrots and raisins, and sunflower seeds. Or I add meat (tuna, seafood, chicken). Or I add red onions, olives, pepperoncini, and salami, cheese, crutons, and bacon bits.
