This is a tasty salad!! I used sambal oelek as my hot chile sauce and I did everything but put the 1/2 tsp salt in. Instead, I roasted my shiitakes with a little bit of salt and pepper before adding them to the salad. I thought the soy sauce gave the salad plenty of salt. Thanks for the recipe, enjoyed a great lunch!
