This dish can be made with shrimp, chicken or pork instead of tofu. Look for the more exotic items in the Asian foods section at your local grocery store. Adjust the pad Thai sauce ingredients to taste.
Tomatoes and basil, fresh from the garden, are tossed with olives, bell peppers, rotini pasta, then dressed with a creamy, piquant blend of mayonnaise, red wine vinegar and garlic. Let the salad chill overnight to bring out the snappy flavors.
