2 pounds angel hair pasta
1/2 pound cooked turkey
1 bunch green onions
1 cup mini corn-on-cobs
1 medium carrots
4 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds
1/4 pound snow peas
1 medium red bell peppers
1 bunch cilantro
1 can water chestnuts -- dressing-
2 cups mayonnaise
3/4 cup soy sauce
1 tablespoon Szechuan hot oil -- or to taste
1/4 cup sesame oil
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
2 cloves garlic -- or more

Preparation / Directions:

Cook pasta until Al Dente. Dice turkey, bell pepper and peeled carrots. Drain and slice water chestnuts. Remove stems from cilantro and use leaves only, saving a few leaves as garnish. Chop green onions. Slice mini corn cobs. Slice snow peas on diagonal into thin strips. Toast sesame seeds and reserve 1 TBS for garnish. Toss all ingredients together. Dressing: Combine all ingredients in food processor and process until well-blended. Add to salad and toss. Garnish with toasted sesame seeds and cilantro. NOTE: I double the turkey, snow peas and corn cobs in this recipe. The dressing is also wonderful for turkey or chicken salad with jicama, red pepper, and green onions.
