The family REALLY loved this! They're not big salad eaters, especially as a main dish, but they approved of this one. The peanut sauce/dressing is excellent. I'll probably use that in other dishes also. I highly recommend this recipe!
This was a great weeknight salad. Weeknight because I keep precooked diced, marinaded (Apple Juice Marinade) chicken in the freezer for just such recipes. I sub'd honey for the sugar for preference and left out the cabbage and cilantro because I don't keep those on hand. Husband actually licked the plate when it was gone.
Nice way to use a tortilla. I'll be doing that again. Sounds cheaper and healthier than ramen, though I haven't done the math.. I made my own dressing and veg substitutions.
