This is so good! I came up with it after having a salad at a restaurant that was similar. It is also great cold, the next day, as leftovers for lunch!
1/2# uncooked spaghetti noodles
1/2 cup mandarin oranges
1/4 cup blue cheese
For Dressing (courtsey of Tyler Florence)
3 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp rice wine vinegar
1 tbsp honey
1 teaspoon sesame oil
Cook your noodles in salted, boiling water for 7-8 minutes. Mix all the ingredients together for dressing.
When noodles are cooked, drain & rinse, then transfer to a large serving bowl. Pour dressing over top, add mandarin oranges and blue cheese. Mix/Toss all together to combine & enjoy!
The beauty of this recipe too, is that if you don't like blue cheese, leave it out. If you love it, it adds such a nice, unexpected touch to this dish. If you have left over chicken, throw it in. Sprouts, baby corns, water chestnuts, bamboo shoots.....throw it in! Whatever suits your tastes!
