I cooked too many soba noodles last night and am I ever glad I did. This salad is delicious. The dressing is special has a nice nip to it. I had to make two sustitutions the Lebanese Cuke turned into an English one and the red onion turned white and sweet (supply and demand.) Fresh Coriander I read as Cilantro (a favorite of mine). The dressing gives it tang, the chopped cucumber some crunch, the chicken adds to the flavor and is part of an interesting texture put it all together and it spells a very tasty salad, This is a salad that you can make upe a couple of hours before serving just let the flavors meld.Thanks Jan for sharing the recipe
This was a nice refreshing salad and quite simple to fix. Will make it again.
Was looking for something different for a nice luncheon. This is fantastic! I didn't have fish sauce, and also used cilantro in place of coriander. I let it chill and served on chilled plates, so light and refreshing with a nice sangria!
