• I box pasta – I used bowtie/farfalle
  • 1 container grape tomatoes – I cut mine in half
  • 1 container (12 ounces) broccoli slaw
  • 1 bottle of your favorite Asian inspired salad dressing – I used Newman’s Own Sesame Ginger Dressing
  • salted peanuts (not in shells) – optional
  • chow mein noodles – optional


  1. Cook your pasta according to package directions. Drain & rinse with cold water.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the cooked pasta, tomatoes, and broccoli slaw. Add as much or as little of the dressing as you’d like & then toss to evenly coat the pasta salad. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
  3. Top with salted peanuts and/or chow mein noodles for extra crunch right before serving.
