I used to love getting this salad at Dayton's in Minneapolis. Had the recipe for 10 years, and then seem to have misplaced it in a move. Luckily, the Marhsall Field's people came through for me, and I'm posting it here for safe-keeping. It IS delicious! Many have asked me for the recipe!

Fantastic Salad!! We loooooved it. I think next time I would only use a 1/2 cup of lite soy sauce though. I used 3/4 cup of regular soy sauce and found it a bit salty. I added a 1/4 cup of water to tone the salt down. Other than that...the recipe was great!! Oh....and I used chicken breast instead of turkey. It's what I had on hand. Will be making again for sure!!!!!! Can't wait to take it to a party. Thanks for the recipe.

LOVE this salad! Only thing is I don't love it with the turkey. I think it gets too mushy when refrigerated. Sub chicken instead. Also really like a lot of snow peas- delicious!
