Does anyone have this recipe, I thought I had it and can't find it and have had a hostess request it for a Bridal Shower Show and I can't even tell her what's in it. OR tell me which cookbook or special promotion it was from???
This was before my time as a consultant. But I've had it, YUMMY!!

Thanks,

Lisa

Is this a good one to do at shows??

Thanks so much!!

I wondered if when this came out?? Not sure when??

Could you use, not the Micro Plane Grater for Ginger Root??

I can't wait to try this one again, it's been a LONG time since the show I was at, now off to grocery store, saving my receipt, I love that!!

I made this but with out the chicken, oranges and spinach, and it was still delicious! I am suck a picky eater that I make what I think is good at my shows, and nobody has complained yet! I printed out the recipe as I made it, then added the other ingredients as 'optional add-ins'

Lisa: If you don't have the Microplane Grater, then use the Food Chopper and chop the ginger root super-fine (just remember to peel first;) ). It's a great recipe...very light and refreshing!

HTH,

I have probably made this recipe about 40 times and have always pressed the ginger in the garlic press...works like a charm.

Dressing variation

Okay I made this salad the other night for Bunko. I had the salad all done and went to go make the dressing and I didn't have the onion mix. People are starting to show up I couldn't run to town (15 mins) so I impervised.

I took a 1/4 cup of italian dressing
1/8 cup of rice vinager
2 cloves of garlic
freshginger
1 tsp of seseame oil

Mix and it was ready. Everybody was really impressed and said the dressing was very yummy. I was glad that it worked, I just had to share!:D

In the Spring/Summer season of 2004, salads were part of the Celebration choices and Pampered Chef teamed up with Lipton. Along with the Mandarin Pasta Salad was the Lemon Chicken Stir-fry.

I got out my 2004 Celebrations folder to make sure I wasn't telling tall tales in the above post. I was reading the training booklet that came along with it and thought I would post a lot of what's written for those of you that don't have it. A lot of questions have been asked in previous posts and this might help answer your questions. :)

Advance Preparation
*Cook, drain and rinse pasta.
*Toast almonds
*Combine vinegar, orange juice, sugar and sesame oil in the Small Batter Bowl.
*Score all but one line of cucumber with the Lemon Zester/Scorer
*Ask guests who arrive early to help with toasting the almonds, cutting vegetables and combining dressing ingredients.

Opening
Start by learning about guests' mealtime needs. Ask: "What's a typical weeknight meal for you and your family: Does your schedule vary because of so many activities: Are you able to sit down and enjoy a meal together?"

After listening to your guests, say "My goal tonight is to share simple solutions that are quicker, more nutritious and less expensive than going to the drive-through for fast food. The Mandarin Pasta Salad that we're going to learn about is a great main dish salad that you can prepare in minutes!"

Recipe Step 1: Prepare the dressing.
Introduce the recipe as a great main dish.

Instead of Ginger Root

Hey Everyone,

I wanted to make this for a 4th of July Party I'm going to but the gingerroot was $3.50 to buy and I don't think I'll be using any more for a long time. Since it is such a small amount for the recipe do you think I could substitute ginder for the ginger root and it would still turn out ok?

Thanks,

Brooke

Brooke,

It would work out fine - I've done it before. For future reference, you don't have to buy the whole "hand" of ginger. You can just break off what you need and buy that. It's allowed ;-)

Freeze Gingerroot

You can even freeze the gingerroot. Just use what you need, put the rest in a Ziploc baggie and pop in the freezer. It will last forever! I use it occasionally (it is really good in a peach smoothie) and I always have some on hand!

I liked it! I made it for a potluck yesterday but no one else raved about it like I have heard it might be a fave! I may try it again with the family since they like asian food!

Made ahead??

I am making the mandarin pasta salad for a baby shower today and was wondering if I can make it ahead and let it sit?

Yes you can, the only thing I do is make the dressing also ( to let it mix) but not put it on till you're ready to eat the salad.:D
