I wanted this to be the salad a friend brought to a picnic last year and it wasn't quite right. Good but probably won't make again. Thanks for posting!
I've been making this salad for years tho with a few changes. I add lots more ginger to the dressing and replace some of the oil with sesame oil; also use cilantro instead of parsley. Very quick and easy to make and can easily be doubled, tripled, etc. I've taken this to numerous potlucks and am always asked for the recipe.
