Top Review by Geema

This recipe was exotic tasting and so delicious. I enjoyed the cinnamony flavor of the 5 spice powder, and my DH loved the addition of the roasted walnuts. I do have to admit to not liking the dressing. It tasted way way to lemony for us. I tinkered with it, adding more mayo and a pinch of salt and sugar to temper the sour taste. Next time I make this...and I will...I am going to use lemon yogurt with a spoonful of honey and at least a 1/2 tsp. of 5 spice powder. I always have fun making your recipes, Mirj!
