Made this yesterday for Zaar Cookbook tag and it was quite delicious! I did add some brown sugar (about 2 Tbls.) and a little garlic and grated ginger to the dressing...DH and I like a little sweetness. It does make a lot! I didn't have bok choy so I added some cut pea pods to the dish for a few more vegetables and followed the rest of the instructions. Definately one I will fix again. Thank you. P.S. I topped it off with some sauteed shrimp for a complete meal.
Great salad. Loved the dressing and all of the vegetables. It is quick and easy to fix and went great with Asian Flank Steak.
