    Combine pineapple chunks, cooked noodles and all remaining salad ingredients in large bowl. Divide mixture among 5 resealable plastic food bowls. Divide dressing among 5 small (1/2 cup) resealable plastic food containers. Cover containers; refrigerate until serving time.

Tip #1

Fresh gingerroot is a great alternate to the ground ginger in this noodle salad. Use a ginger grater (found in kitchen specialty stores) or the small holes in a grater to shred fresh gingerroot.
