Since I like fresh veggies, this was certainly edible. But there was no taste at all to us. I detected the least bit of ginger, though my husband found no taste. I love the idea of this recipe but it would need a lot more sauce to make this something we'd repeat. Thanks for a healthy one to try, though!

this is a nice crunchy salad. i couldn't find white balsamic vinegar, so i subbed half regular balsamic and half white wine vinegar. the flavors weren't as bold as i expected. next time i will add even more ginger. and don't leave out the parsley! you definitely taste it in this salad. a longer chilling time improves the flavor. i had the leftovers the next day for lunch and enjoyed them.
