I made this for us for dinner on Sunday night and waited until today to rate it because I really didn't know what I thought of it, it's such a different dish from anything that I've ever had! The texture of the veggies turned out wonderful, but the sauce was strange for us, not necessarily bad, just so so different. It seemed like with the amount of spices in it it should have been more flavorful, it actually comes out sort of understated. I think this would be a great dish for someone who is trying to learn to like new spices and flavors, but I think I just expected a little more punch from the dish. It really was a nice summer salad, and again, the method of prep on the veggies made them turn out beautifully. Also, unlike one of the previous raters, I ate some leftovers of this last night, and they were just as good as they were the night before.
