Very nice and colorfull slaw. I liked the idea of mandarins and peanuts in it. The only problem was, the dressing was very mild and even after refrigerating for hours, the endresult was somewhat bland. I fortified it up with more vinegar and some sugar. But, I think it needs bit more than that.

We really enjoyed this delicious and festive-looking salad as part of a summertime barbeque! I used an 11-ounce can of drained mandarin oranges with a dash of sugar and added a package of broken up ramen noodles (NOT the ramen flavor packet) for texture. The salad dressing is very tasty. I added maybe three-fourths of it several hours in advance of our meal ~ The salad tasted even better the second day!
