We really enjoyed this salad! The extra crunch from the toasted almonds really sets it apart from other asian slaw recipes I have tried. I only used 2/3 cup oil (1 tablespoon of sesame oil, for a little extra sesame kick, and the balance of the oil was canola) and next time I may cut it back 1/2 cup or less.
