    Kirstin in the Couv's Note:

    This is the perfect entree salad in my opinion! Once you make it the first time, you will want it again and again! It is very crisp, clean and fresh tasting. Although there are a lot of ingredients, it is very simple and foolproof to prepare. I always buy a precooked whole chicken at the market to use for this salad. Makes it perfect for a summer get-together!

      This was excellent! I was initially a bit sceptical about the combination of some of the ingredients but they really worked well together with the yummy marinade. It didn't take me as long as indicated to make this, I think because I cut the chicken into strips before roasting it, so it baked faster. This is very good but very hot and spicy as well. If you aren't a big spice fan, I'd recommend deseeding the chilies before you mix up the dressing or even just leave them out entirely. The recipe has lots of flavour regardless. Since I first made this I've returned to the recipe many times and have made it as well with salmon in a teriyaki sauce on top.

      This is absolutely luscious. What a combo of textures and flavors! I cut back on the oil by 3/4, but added a bit of xanthan gum to thicken the dressing. Never tried it before, but it works great. Dieting (boo hoo) never tasted so good. Don't leave out the peanuts! They really add that final coup.

      It's a nice, light salad with different textures, but I would try going light with the peanut oil, so that I could cut down w/the calories and such. For additional flavors, I bought shrimp chips that were already prepared at my Asian store to indulge along w/the salad! Very yummy!
