We really enjoyed this salad on a hot summer day! I can't bring myself to use iceberg lettuce since it has no nutritional value so I used an asian coleslaw mix (nappa cabbage and carrots I believe) and it turned out great. Thanks for the great recipe LMillerRN.....
I am a firehouse cook. Unfortunately I have to satisfy up to 13 people at a time with lunch and dinner. I recently made this for lunch with 12 eaters of all different tastes and this was definitely a hit! I tripled the recipe for the sauce and I used 1 romaine, 1 green leaf and 1 iceberg lettuce. I probably could have made more dressing but guys added Asian sesame dressing to boost the flavor a little if needed. I think if I would have made more dressing, it would not have been necessary. Needless to say it was gone! I made 2 very large bowls. It had great flavor. If you want to watch the sugar, you can cut it down because the hoisen sauce has plenty of sugar in it. The salt can be cut down as well because the vinegar has a salty flavor as well. Definitely a great recipe and I would recommend it to anyone.
Great salad but my husband and I didn't like the dressing. Will make again with a different salad dressing
Sensational salad! I made exactly as written but omitted the bean sprouts (couldn't find any) but added some radichi for colour. I started by cooking 2 chicken breasts. Also, I toasted the cashews in a dry frying pan for about 3-4 minutes. I also added a wee bit of the syrup from the mandarin oranges to the sauce and poured everything over the salad with the chicken sliced on top. WOW ! My DH and I split this for supper last night....and I had to go back and finish off the rest of what was left in the big salad bowl! I'm even thinking about making it again this week ! Absolutely loved it ! Thanks so much for giving me a great salad that I won't tire of !
I used the whole head of lettuce adding left over chicken from my Ginger Chicken and Peanut Sauce Wraps Ginger Chicken and Peanut Sauce Wraps and these Five Spice Peanuts Five Spice Peanuts That I made using cashews which kicked the salad up a notch. Also added some of the orange juice for the dressing to go a little farther with some finely minced cilantro and parsley. Be careful this crunchy salad is very addictive! I guess that's a good thing. Thanks for a great meal! Yes, meal very filling. I`m sure it would be a great side as well. ;)
I made this for supper tonight. Delicious!
