A *REALLY* good recipe! :)

My boss had this salad last week and it looked so yummy that I had to have some.

Asian Crunch Salad

3 ounces uncooked whole wheat spaghetti (it gives it this GREAT nutty flavor!)
1/3 cup seasoned rice vinegar
2 tablespoons sugar
3 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon minced garlic (I put in a bunch more because I love garlic!)
1/2 cup chopped green onions
1/2 cup frozen baby peas
1/4 cup red bell pepper strips
1 (12 ounce) package broccoli slaw
1/4 cup chopped unsalted, dry-roasted peanuts

1. Break pasta into 3 inch pieces; cook according to package directions, ommitting salt and fat. Drain.

2. Combine vinegar and next 4 ingredients (through garlic) in a large bowl. Add pasta, onions, and next 4 ingredients (through slaw) to vinegar mixture; toss gently to coat. Cover and chill at least 2 hours. Top with peanuts.

I actually made this recipe with a whole box of pasta. It was still just as yummy and it got better as it sat. I highly recommend it!

I'm with D on the not weighing yourself tomorrow. Think if you went a week without it it would totally change your whole outlook.
