No mayo alert! This pasta salad takes inspiration from spring rolls with edamame, carrots, and bell peppers. The dressing is a savory combination of miso, ginger, soy, and sesame. This salad gets better as it sits, making it perfect for picnics.





  1. For the salad: Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add in the pasta and cook according to package directions until al dente. Add in the broccoli and cook for 1 minute more. Drain and set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, make the dressing. Add the miso paste, ginger, lime juice, soy sauce, canola oil, vinegar, sesame oil, and sesame seeds to a mason jar, cover and shake to emulsify. Set aside.
  3. Add the cucumbers, bell peppers, edamame, and carrots to a large bowl. Add in the warm pasta and broccoli. Pour the dressing onto the salad and toss to combine. Garnish with chopped chives and sesame seeds.
