First a warning: If you do not like spicy, look elsewhere. If you are serving small children, look elsewhere. If you are fond of blandness, then definitely look elsewhere! :) This dish is INCREDIBLY spicy. We had tears running down our cheeks, our sinuses were cleared for the next year, and we were guzzling milk. BUT! The adults at my house practically bowed down at my feet after eating this. After one bite, they said it was 5 stars. After 2 they asked when they could have it again. I am not as big a fan of heat, but I couldn't stop eating it, either. Beyond, through, and after the heat, this dish has a lovely balance of flavors which I loved. Thank you, thank you, thank you for posting. Made for ZWT4, but I WILL be making this again!
Try this salad - you won't be disappointed! The flavors and textures are really good together. I used a small amount of chile paste with garlic in lieu of the red pepper sauce. The amount of oil and soy sauce make enough dressing for a double recipe (4-5 yams). Loved this salad!
ok wow this was great . i didnt use as much hot sauce but this salad is AWESOME try this one it works. made for best of 2012
This was super delicious, but I have to admit I did not add a whole bottle of hot sauce! I subbed some sweet chili sauce, but might also add a fresh jalapeno next time to it as well. I also used half the soy sauce and only a half tablespoon of oil. In addition, I used Mexican pumpkin seeds at half the quantity - and they were perfect with it. That and the ginger really make this, but all the flavors together do blend so well and are very balanced. We made this as an entree salad and it served 2-3. This is a standout!
