Simpatico: Throw Together Asian Salad

Simpatico

Just the life and times of a silly girl, her dachshunds and all things Southern!

Throw Together Asian Salad

I was planning a picnic dinner at the local arboretum, and really didn't wish to go out to purchase anything. I looked at my fridge and pantry, and this was what I came up with to go along with grilled hamburgers. It was a huge hit!
Throw Together Asian Salad
Dressing
* 3 tablespoons hoisin sauce
* 1/2 teaspoon bottled ground fresh ginger
* 1 teaspoons garlic powder
* 1 tablespoon sugar
* 2 tablespoons sesame oil
* 1/2 teaspoon grated orange rind
* 4 tablespoons fresh orange juice
* 2 tablespoons soy sauce
Salad
* 1/2 cup thinly sliced seeded peeled cucumber
* 1/4 cup chopped red onion
* 1/2 cup matchstick-cut carrots
* 2 tablespoons flaked coconut
* 1/4 cup chopped pecans
* 2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds
* 1 orange, cut into segments
* 2 1/2 cups cooked spaghetti noodles

Mix the dressing together in a bowl and combine with the salad. Refrigerate until serving.
