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.)

Very nice indeed! I used leftover black lentils and brown rice. Otherwise made it as written. Great flavors. Made a few hours ahead of dinner, as the others said the flavors blend well with time. Made for Veg*n Swap. THANKS! Update. . .I threw in some leftover canned mandarine oranges and they were a great addition.

I really loved this salad! I omitted the cranberries (can't find them over here) and didn't wait for the rice to cool - it tasted really nice warm! We enjoyed it alongside some chapatis. I would've never come up with this salad on my own and was really pleased with the results! Thanks for another great recipe Syd! Made for veg*n swap II.

ok, this might be long winded, so I apologise. First of all, this was amazing!! I LOVED every ingredient in this. AND it was even better the next day as leftovers. Because I was using leftover brown rice, I thought I might have too much, so I made 1 1/2 times the recipe for the dressing, and I think it was a bit too much. But that is MY fault for meddling!!! When we ate the leftovers, however, all the dressing was nicely absorbed. The only change I made was to drizzle a bit of sesame oil into the dressing too. Thanks! I KNOW I'll be making this again

A wonderful dish. I liked the crunchiness of the water chestnuts and peanuts. The snow peas just put it up at the top of the scale! A very pretty dish and would be great for serving guests! Prepared for the My 3 Chefs June 2008 Event.

Made for Newest Zaar Tag 2008 (April). My family wasn't exactly crazy about this. I thought it was good, but doubt that I would make it again unless I took it to a carry-in at work.

Made just half the recipe for Carly and myself. I forgot the snow peas (fresh, too) in the fridge but otherwise salad was made as posted. This is definitely a repeater, TFS this one. Made for ZWT4
