Very good and spicy salad which we enjoyed with lamb chops! I was out of ginger so I skipped it and I was also out of hot chili peppers so used crushed red pepper flakes - using the same amount as listed - it was too hot for me but my dh and ds loved the heat! Tomorrow I am mixing the leftover salad with a small can of tuna for a great lunch! Thanks for sharing!
