I tried this last night, yum. I did not have any red cabbage so just used green chinese and I added a sliced chilli.

I made this for a church lunch. People said it looked really good but it didn't get eaten up. My husband said he'd give it 3 stars as he found it too tart; however, a woman from Taiwan (who NEVER compliments food) said this was wonderful. I guess it's very authentic. I did make a few changes. I used leftover grilled sirloin steaks and marinated them overnight in bottled sesame ginger marinade. Then I reheated them in the microwave just before serving the salad. Due to what I had on hand, I used regular lite soy sauce, substituted additional green onions for the shallots, left out the lemongrass, and substituted a banana pepper for the Thai chili. I'm saving this recipe for when I have additional leftover steak, though next time I'd add 1 Tablespoon brown sugar and a diced granny smith apple.

This dish wakes up your taste buds... You have tang, salt, crunch, fresh ingredients. A great filling summer salad. I must say this was so good. Low Cal and Carb! I cut the recipe in half. I used only green cabbage. Added a couple drops of sesame oil 1/4 sliced yellow pepper, because I had it left over from an other dish. I didn't have lemongrass so it was skipped. This was crunchy, refreshing, satisfying and very tasty.I mixed all the salad ingerdients together except for the noodles and almonds which I pan toasted. The cilantro I skipped for my DH but I know I would have loved it. I can`t believe no one else tried this.
