4 cloves garlic
1/2 c. creamy peanut butter
1/4 c. ketchup
1/4 c. brown sugar
2 tsp. ground ginger
1 tbsp.. onion powder
1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper
2 tbsp. sugar
1/4 tsp. red chili flakes
juice from 1/2 lemon
1/4 c. water
1/4 c. plus 2 tbsp. soy sauce
2 tbsp. salad oil
1 tbsp. red wine vinegar
1 tbsp. sesame oil
4 tbsp. white vinegar
2 tbsp. lime juice

1 lb. penne pasta-cooked, drained and cooled
1 cucumber-seeded and sliced
2 green onions-chopped
2 carrots-peeled and grated
1 red pepper-thinly sliced

sliced grilled chicken

Mix together Peanut Sauce ingredients. I usually don't put in as much red pepper and chili flakes as called for. It can be very spicy. Blend it well in a food processor or in a large bowl with an electric mixer. It needs to be well mixed. The texture will be like watered down peanut butter.

Next, in a separate bowl, mix together salad ingredients. Toss salad with peanut sauce. Garnish with grilled chicken, tomatoes, and cilantro. (You can also try other veggies or cube more chicken for the salad.)

This is the salad I brought to Sarah's bridal shower. It's a great summer dish.
