This is really light and crisp. I made it for a Chinese potluck party and it was a hit. Cooking time is chilling time. From Better Homes & Gardens.

This was very good! I don't like nuts so omitted those, I used black sesame seeds instead, doubled the red pepper flakes and when serving added Sriracha hot sauce and this was very much enjoyed. I served this initially with teriyaki salmon but the next day I had a catfish filet left over, so I topped the filet with this salad on a bun and had a great lite lunch. This salad has endless possibilities.

This was good. I liked the flavor and would probably make it again. I think it would be better with some green or red peppers added to the vegetable mix. I used cashews instead of peanuts. Reviewed for PAC 2008
