This is one of my favorite recipes! This salad is so crunchy and flavorful, and very easy to make. I will occasionally vary the recipe by omitting the broccoli and adding mandarin oranges and/or shredded carrot. Remember to keep all of the ingredients separate until you are ready to serve. Enjoy!
We were surprised that we would like this but I had all the ingredients and we LOVED it! Sherry wine viegar made for a lighter and elegant taste! And I used about .3 of the sugar called for. We used unhulled sesame seeds and figured the author meant to say lightly 'toasted', so that's what I did. We will be making again for my folks next month as I am sure they will like it too!
My husband and I loved this too. Our kids however were not that sure about it. To lower the calories and fat - I didn't put in the ramen noodles (they are deep-fried). Instead I added some peas, a few more almonds, pumpin seeds and some fresh corn. Wonderful and crunchy.
My husband and I thought this was great . . . my kids weren't wild about it, though. Too bad for them!! I'll be making this again and often - I'll just cut it in half, since the kids won't be eating it!
