This is a REALLY GREAT salad. I made it as written with my only exceptions being that I used baby haricot verts that I blanched instead of the snow peas and that I used slightly less oil than called for. My main regret was that I purchased a whole can of chipotle peppers to use just two teaspoons for the dressing! Next time I will substitute sriracha and smoked paprika for the chipotle. This is a super salad, though, with a really great dressing. I'll make this one again. Thanks for posting.

The Red Chile Peanut Dressing is wonderful. Very well balanced and not too much peanut flavor.
I prepared just a bit hotter and let stand one day and used it on an Asian dry rubbed tenderloin a top a mixed romaine, kalmata and mixed grilled pepper salad. Pefect! Thanks for the post.

Loved this salad and dressing. I will make it many times again. I did make the dressing ahead and let it meld together. Tasted it when I was done making it and thought I didn't like it but later loved it. forgot the peanuts but will add those next time.

The dressing in this recipe is very balanced and the snow peas add a nice crunch. I had all of the ingredients on hand, except fresh ginger. The dressing was still very tasty without it. I will make this again. It was very easy! Thanks for posting this recipe.

This was nice and perfectly spicy. A little spicy for my wife but I really enjoyed it. The dressing is also awesome so make extra. I will be repeating this!

Fantastic! I mixed the dressing in my food processor & used pre-cut romaine hearts/cole slaw mix. Easy and very tasty. Thanks for a winner!

I have to agree. This recipe is all about the dressing. I could bathe in the stuff. Think I'll add a little more chipotle next time to kick it up a notch.

This is simply wonderful! It felt like a lot of work but the results were well worth the effort. Don't forget the mint. It really adds the perfect touch to the mild spiciness of the chipotle peppers! Try this one!!! THanks for the wonderful recipe!!
