This recipe came with my kid's lunchbox. It's nice and easy enough to set aside things like cooked pasta and chopped broccoli the night before.
cooked pasta. I generally use some sort of small, kid-friendly shape. (and you'll want about a cup...)
some chopped veggies: red or green peppers, sugar snap peas (those are nicer left whole), thinly chopped cabbage...
a bit of broccoli, cut into bite-sized pieces
some grated or chopped raw carrot
a handful of bean sprouts
The dressing is:
1 clove minced garlic
2 tbsp sesame oil
2 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp sesame seeds (I normally use flax seeds instead, since I am No Fun.)
and some chopped cilantro. (just a tablespoon or so.)
Mix the dressing ingredients together and then toss it with the salad ingredients. Ta da.
