Delicious! I LOVED this salad!! Beautiful to look at as well as great tasting. My rice vinegar was not sweet so I added honey, but otherwise followed the recipe. This reminded me a bit of fruit salsa. I could have eaten the entire salad myself but alas, had to share with Dh. I made 1/2 the recipe shown so I had less cutting to do, but the 45 minutes prep time seems a bit long. I think you can do it in less time. The recipe doesn't state it, but I peeled the pears. Thank you, Grace Lynn!
I'd give this salad MORE stars if I could! It was so delicious, refreshing, healthy, and awesome! I loved the combination of Asian pears and celery and the dressing was simple to make but complex in flavor! And NO fat!! SO GOOD! ***The recipe specifies "seasoned" rice vinegar which is a slightly SWEETENED version of regular rice vinegar, for those of you who thought it should have been sweeter. If you used regular, plain rice vinegar, you would need to add a little sugar or honey to approximate the same flavor.
This salad is very good. I used red pepper flakes as I did not have the chili peppers. It went really fast. This will be one of my salads on regular rotation at my house.
What a yummy dish...the only change I made was using red pepper flakes because I couldn't locate any fresh red chili peppers...I did pick up some jalapeno peppers...but with all the green I felt it needed a touch of red...both hubby and I enjoyed the crisp fresh taste of this dish along with the touch of spice...thanks for posting it...=)
I loved this. Very refreshing, and light. A unique summer salad. I used sweet pepper chili sauce instead of the fresh hot chili peppers, and it was wonderful. For a little extra color I added some red grapes, they added great flavor too. The dish is missing something crunchy though- maybe the next time I will top it off with some roasted nuts, right before serving.
We loved this. Very refreshing with the lime juice. I did not have any Rice vinegar, but used white vinegar and ended up adding a bit of mayonnaise and sugar to get a flavor that I liked.
