Chinese-Style Pasta Salad: Dinner for $10
Before too long, you know it’ll happen: you’ll be watching the evening news and there it’ll be, that “band of high pressure” marching steadily your way, and the weatherman (always strangely chipper about these things) announcing, “Looks like another heat wave!” Ugh.
There’s hot, and then there’s hot — like fry-the-egg-on-the-sidewalk hot. For just plain hot, you might resort to cooking dinner on the grill, but when it’s 95 degrees at sundown and there’s no breeze, who wants to stand over an open flame?
That’s what makes recipes like this Chinese-Style Pasta Salad into something of a lifesaver. Make it just before the hottest weather hits (it takes all of 25 minutes), then let it chill in the fridge. Presto! You’ve got a cool, flavorful dinner to last you through the hottest days. It makes 8 servings, after all — and at just 95 cents per serving, you’ll have enough cash left over to go out for ice cream!
