Thai Noodle Salad

This salad is a perennial favorite at parties and picnics. The delicious tahini dressing recipe makes more than you need, but it keeps for 3 weeks in the refrigerator. It's convenient to have the dressing on hand so that you can make this salad quickly with whatever vegetables and pasta you might have. For optimum flavor and texture, the salad is best eaten within 2 days.
