This, like  Chinese Pot Roast Chicken  is a faithful family favorite.

My husband walked through the door while the linguine was still boiling and the other ingredients waited, prepped on the counter.

First words out of his mouth… “It smells like that pasta salad you used to make when we were dating.”

Yup, big smile, nailed it.

I lost the recipe some years back, but decided to attempt it from memory.  Success! It’s back and I’m so in love with this refreshing easy to make salad.  Enjoy!
