This is my own concoction..out of frustration over loosing flavor in my pasta salads..this method works..and the flavor has been a big hit
I have found that NOT rinsing the pasta it absorbs the good flavors into the noodles..and even though is gets sticky the sauce will loosen it again
Boil lo mein noodles 4 minutes..drain..DO NOT RINSE..spread on a cookie sheet..sprinkle with 1 Tbs of dry hidden valley ( reserve remaining to make dressing)..gently toss..let cool with a damp towel over it for over night..(at least 2 hours refig.) It is going to look stiff..
Chop all vegetables..put noodles in a big bowl..use kitchen shears and cut up into shorter lengths..add vegetables and cooked shrimp
Mix the sour cream and mayo with reserved dry hidden valley ranch ( do not subsitute..I buy the jar of hidden valley instead of the packets) mix with pasta...add a little milk or cream if you like a thinner dressing
