      Bravo, nice salad! I made this a couple of days ago following the directions exactly but used the microplane to grate my ginger and I did not have the lemongrass so used the zest of one lemon. To my dressing I added 1 tablespoon of canola oil to hold it onto the salad better. I cooked my own shrimp but see how easy it would be with pre-cooked. I actually think I would like this even better with chicken. Thanks for posting, Sue Lau.

      So much satisfaction, so little fat and calories! I forgot to get lemongrass, so I subbed the zest of one lemon. I also served the gingerroot on the side, because of family allergies. This was so full of flavor! Thank you for posting.

      Wow! I halved the recipe and used the lime sauce mixture as 1 serving over my salad. I took a taste of the sauce and knew I wanted my salad saturated with it! I realized that my shrimp had freezer burn so I had to cook chicken breast. I sliced the chicken thinly and sauteed in sesame seed oil, trying to keep in line with the recipe's flavor. I didn't have any chiles so I just used slices of jalapenos with the seeds. Gave it a nice kick! Great for those who like the heat! Next time I'll cut the lemongrass in smaller pieces as I found them a little harder to eat and getting in the way when raw. They do add a great flavor. I found it fresh at Whole Foods. When I was done eating, I gathered the remaining "juice" and packed it to eat with my next serving, lunch, the following day. Update: I had to add some garlic oil to the dressing for some fat to make this a main meal.
