Excellent salad ! I subbed rocket for the snow peas and just loved the addition of the water chestnuts and the soy sauce in the dressing. I left out the dried fruit due to personal preference. A big plus here too for me is the versatility. You could add and subtract ingredients here and still get a great Asian feel salad with such a marvellous dressing. Made for ZWT 6.

Syd, this was so good. Loved the mix of flavors. I replaced the waterchestnuts with carrots cause I forgot to buy the waterchestnuts :(. Thanks for posting.

wow! this is AMAZING!!!! i think the only thing i will do differently next time is cut up the water chestnuts so i get more in every bite :) the ones i used were sliced but were very big around so i think it'd be nice to make them a little smaller. this will be my new "dish-to-pass" dish to take to get togethers. (especially great for the summer cuz there's no dairy or meat which could spoil.)
