*Dacia's Variation* Everyone loves this salad, but I don't love the flavor that the BBQ sauce ads. So I did some digging and found another dressing and tried it and it was so good! So, see below for a variation on the dressing if you aren't into BBQ sauce. Just know that if you do that dressing, you will need to make about 14-15 oz. of noodles instead of just 8 oz.
