LOVED it! I made this last night for dinner as our main dish, so I topped hubby's with poached chicken breast. I subbed the romaine for napa cabbage which was great. And in the dressing, I subbed 1 packet of truvia for the sugar, added some fresh grated ginger (which I totally recommend), and replaced 1 Tbsp of the oil with water (to decrease fat). Next time I will let the salad (minus the pears) marinate for about 30 minutes and then top with the pears and seeds just before serving.
Delicious! I made as directed except for subbing an asian pear for one of the red and adding more green onions. The salad was perfect for a hot day~~~ very refreshing and not too heavy. I liked the combination of crunchy, sweet, and savory and the colors have lots of eye appeal.
Sharon this is a wonderful salad, I had to use fresh peaches in place of the pears which seemed to work well, also I used packaged coleslaw mix in place of the green cabbage and shredded carrots, the flavors complimeted each other just wonderful, thank you for sharing hon!
WONDERFUL and ROMANTIC! This would be great for Valentine's Day! The flavors are fabulous together. I made a half recipe, using my peeler to make carrot ribbons and subbing a Splenda packet for the sugar. Freddy Cat says thanks for the trip to Asia! Made for the Zaar tag game.
