i love this salad!! the dressing is very very good. a good combination of salty, sweet, sour and spicy (i did use a full tablespoon of hot dried pepper flakes). i didn't have any bok choy, so i substituted with blanched cabbage. the results are a little soggy (all my fault, not the recipe) but delicious. thanks eve!
