Really good! The only change I made was to add a little fish sauce... the recipe as written seemed to be missing something, and Thai fish sauce filled the bill. I'll be taking this in my bento tomorrow; so thanks for a great lunch option!

Very tasty salad, easy to make and with ingredients that are always in my fridge. Shredding the cabbage takes time, but I did a whole head of cabbage in one go and so was able to whip up a second batch in no time the next day. Will be making again all the time. Note, BF hates peanut butter so I scaled it down a bit (even though I would have preferred the whole Tbsp.) and upped the cilantro.

This is a great salad, but as written I found it too sharp tasting for me. Now when I make it, I change the dressing quite a bit -- reduce the soy sauce & rice vinegar to 1 T. each, cut the garlic-chili sauce in half, double the peanut butter, increase the water to 1/2 T, and add 1/2 T. sugar. The end result is a full-flavored salad with just a bit of zing. Thanks for a great recipe that I could tweak to suit my own taste!
