This is a wonderfully different type of salad. It may seem kind of plain, but it's got great flavor and yes, the romaine does stay crunchy. I used reduced-sodium soy sauce and still thought it was very salty. I sprinkled about 1 tsp of sugar on it and tossed well and that really did the trick. It was fantastic! This makes a nice light lunch with some Asain noodle soup. I may try throwing in some scallions next time, too. Thanx for posting this!
Loved the flavor of the sesame oil, soy and red pepper flakes. I had to use ground ginger and garlic powder (was out of both of the fresh). I'm making it again tomorrow for lunch! Made for Zaar Cookbook Tag Game 2011.
Yum! This went great with 10 Minute Szechuan Chicken and was very easy to prepare. Loved that it is ready ahead of time. We liked it better cold than room temp. Next days leftovers were just as good as day one! The dressing is very different. The soy made it a bit salty so if you are salt conscious use low sodium or tamari or something. Thanks for sharing a keeper!
Sensational thanks Sharon. I made, tasted and photographed the recipe as written, then added in some green onions and bean shoots which I think are perfectly in keeping with the salad's Asian flavour. I think this salad would be perfect with Japanese or Korean style meals which are often hard to decide on side dishes for and perfect for an Aussie BBQ. I'll be making this again real soon!
Good flavor, easy preparation. Still nice bit of crunch the following day. Goes together quickly. The toasted sesame seeds are great, I used a combination of black and white seeds, and threw in some diagonally cut scallions that I had on hand. Thanks for this adaptation, Sharon.
Very nice easy to make salad. Loved the simple dressing yet full of flavour. Made for Newest Zaar Tag March 2009
