      I was looking for a new salad recipe to take to Easter dinner at my in-law's house. This one looked interesting, and I wasn't disappointed. I sprinkled a little brown sugar over the "crispies" as they were sauteeing. I also added some ginger to the dressing and mandarin oranges to the salad. Everyone really enjoyed this salad. Thanks for sharing, Mary Anne.

      Very good..I added mandarin oranges, bacon and craisins to the salad. The crispies were hard to stop munching on before I had the salad served; I also added a little brown sugar to the noodles and almonds while browning. Just be sure to keep stirring the topping while cooking as it can burn very quickly if you're not careful.

      Thank you for sharing the recipe..
