I made this last night, and as I'm typing this I'm thinking that adding a few dashes of hot sauce to the dressing would make this dish even better ... food for thought (ha, no pun intended). Also I served this as a main dish salad, but it could just as easily be a starter salad to another asian dish, in which the serving size would increase. YUM...
