I absolutely LOVED this recipe!!! I used peaches because I am not a big fan of mandarin oranges. I also added cucumber and sliced sweet red pepper. This was awesome warm as a dinner dish (eggrolls on the side), and the leftovers were awesome cold! The dressing is soooo good. As a matter of fact, I think I'm going to make up a batch just to have on hand for regular green salads. And, IT'S LOW IN FAT!!!! Love it, love it, love it!!! Thank you taylortwo!!! Keep those recipes coming!!:) ~Manda
This is an excellent salad. With our first hot days of the year, I wanted something light and cold for dinner and I'm so glad I found this. I substituted sweet red peppers for the fruit and used soba (buckwheat) noodles. I also used romaine hearts as TT suggested. The flavors in the sauce were wonderful and I really liked the flavor with the noodles. I think that I may add some tofu and other vegies with this because it is such a great versatile recipe. We'll be making this often. Thank you for posting this.
We wanted a light dinner, so I left out the pasta and added more greens. It was good. But THAT SAUCE! It is fantastic! I believe that you could drizzle some on a buffalo chip and it would be tasty! A stroke of genius, taylortwo.
This is a honey of a chicken salad. The dressing adds a lot of sass to this dish. I made it for lunch and had some girlfriends over. They loved it too. I drizzled some of the dressing over the chicken before adding the other ingredients, then drizzled what was left of the dressing over the top. I can't wait to have this one again. Thanks for sharing it, taylortwo.
This dressing is soooo tasty! I made it exactly as posted. I doubled this recipe and just served it all mixed together like a pasta salad. For the fruit, I used Mandarin orange segments, and tossed in a little chopped cucumber from the garden. Everyone wanted the recipe! The only thing I would do different for next time, is to break up the pasta a bit - easier to eat. Thanks, TT!
I made this with peaches and used half a rotisserie chicken. Delicious! I would absolutely make it again.
Yum Yum....I have been looking for that flavor in a sauce. It could be used for so many things!Thanx TaylorTwo....awesome!
Great recipe! The combination of flavors is excellent. I loved(and so did my husband, who was a little unsure) the addition of the nectarines. Couldn't find baby bok choy, so I used romaine hearts that I sliced up. It was amazing. I also tossed the chicken with a little dressing before adding to the salad. This will be in regular rotation this summer. Thanks tt!
What an easy recipe. I made it for 8 guys at the firehouse and thought it might be too light for them. They loved it and went back for seconds. Great light dinner or lunch idea. It was very easy to make and tasted fantastic!
DE-lish! This was a big hit with me, hubby and our kids (ages 6, 5 and 1). You're right, you can really throw anything into this salad. I used what we had on hand: spaghetti noodles (not angel hair), romaine, napa cabbage, cucumbers, cherry tomatoes and grapes. My fresh ginger bit the dust, so I had to use powdered - looking forward to making it next time with the zippier fresh ginger. I always use fresh garlic and chop as needed - this added a bit of heat to the dressing. Because I was serving to little palettes I cut back on the black pepper (fresh ground has more kick) and put only a quick sprinkle of pepper flakes into the dressing. Hubby ate cold leftovers today and said it was great. I made extra dressing and put it on a veggie salad for myself today - yum! By the way, I usually saute meat, but I'm trying to cut back on calories and poached the chicken as directed. Once the sauce was added it was very good. Thanks for the recipe, it's a keeper!
