with an asian flair, this is wonderful as a first course or a side dish to tame the heat of spicier dishes.

Very nice, I cut the sesame oil in half (I thought it was fine with that amount and feared much more would be overpowering) and added just a splash of low sodium soy sauce. I just love a summer salad (so flavorful, btw) that won't spoil in the summer heat like a mayo based salad will. Thanks for sharing!
