This salad is delicious and oh so simple! I added a sliced scallion to the pan just before the vinegar and sugar and liked the result. Then I enjoyed the entire yummy salad myself (it's not too much for one person) for lunch ~ Thanks for sharing a recipe I'll use again and again!

Absolute perfection! The dressing for this salad is incredible. I must admit that I didn't measure the vinegar or sugar. I just splashed what appeared to be the correct amounts into the pan and brought it to a boil to create a nice syrup. I have had this dressing in restaurants, but this was my first time preparing. I can't believe how simple it was for such great flavor. I will be making this again.
