Excellent salad. Made with regular cabbage when I didn't have chinese. Used unsweetened tinned pineapple and left the ginger out. By keeping all the cut vegetables in a sealed box in the fridge and adding pineapple and dressing just before serving I was able to make ahead by a few days. Thank you for this.

Good stuff Carla!!! Thanks so much for posting! The only changes I made were using ground ginger instead of fresh and I only had about 1/2 a cup of parsley left. Amazing and super fast to make. OH, I almost forgot I did almost double the sauce because I like it doused in the naughtiness of mayo!

Our family enjoyed the unique flavors that came together in this salad. It was a good change from a tossed salad. The ginger and pineapple was good together.
