This recipe was terrific! I love Asian food, and this salad was interesting and full of zing. It was colorful, delicious, and the tastes blended together perfectly. I'd definitely make it again.

I LOVED this recipe!! I only made a few minor changes. I do not like hot, so I omitted the chili oil. I used 1 Tbsp. of sesame oil, and 2 Tbsp. of peanut oil (instead of 3 Tbsp. of peanut oil) because I LOVE the taste of sesame oil. Also, I served this over a bed of romaine lettuce and sprinkled with chow mein noodles. Absolutely to die for!!! Thanks for posting, Di!
