fantastic! since i didn't have the smaller tortilla size, i decided to use rice paper wraps instead which cuts down on calories alot as well. They were sooo good. Will make it again and again

This was a wonderful recipe - I loved the peanut sauce! I am picky about my peanut sauce and this has turned out to be one of my favorites. My fresh ginger had gone bad so I was forced to use the powdered kind. I can't wait to try it with the fresh. This is one of those versatile recipes that works with whatever you've got in your fridge.
I am vegetarian so instead of the chicken I used Quorn chicken-like unbreaded tenders, but I think it would be just as good with veggies alone.
I am on a diet so while I did have one small tortilla I also put some of the filling into a leaf of red leaf lettuce. Yummy!
Thanks for the great recipe!

This is really good, healthy and a great make-ahead meal. It will especially be enjoyed in the Summer, when I don't want to heat up the kitchen. I used a different peanut sauce, but loved the ingredients put together in this recipe. I also added some shredded cabbage. Carrots and pea pods would be another great addition - maybe even some diced water chestnuts. Next time I will try to cut everything in smaller pieces - like a chopped salad. Something about the chopped salad just tastes better to me and I think the same would be true of smaller chopped ingredients in this salad too. Thanks for sharing!
