Crunchy Asian Pasta Salad

A soy sauce dressing adds Asian inspiration to a veggie and fruit pasta

1 box Betty Crocker Suddenly Salad classic pasta salad mix
1 package (3 oz) Oriental-flavor ramen noodle soup mix
3 tablespoons sugar
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 tablespoons white vinegar
2 tablespoons water
1 tablespoon soy sauce
3 cups coleslaw mix
1 cup snow pea pods, strings removed, cut diagonally into 1/2-inch pieces
1/2 cup sliced almonds, toasted
1 can (15 oz) mandarin orange segments, drained

Empty pasta mix into 3-quart saucepan 2/3 full of boiling water. Gently boil
uncovered 12 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Drain pasta; rinse with cold water. Shake to drain well.
In large bowl, stir together seasoning mixes from pasta mix and soup mix,
sugar, oil, vinegar, water and soy sauce. Add pasta, coleslaw mix, pea pods,
almonds and oranges; toss to combine.

Just before serving, coarsely crush dry noodles from soup mix; stir into
pasta mixture. Serve immediately, or refrigerate.

Makes:10 servings (1 cup each)

To toast almonds, sprinkle in ungreased heavy skillet. Cook over medium heat
5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently until almonds begin to brown, then
stirring constantly until they are light brown.

This salad is delicious served with grilled chicken, burgers or pork.
