"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."
"Didn´t have any noodles. Used romaine lettuce and cherry tomatoes. Great!!"
"This salad is fantastic! The crunchies and the dressing mix perfectly."
"Totally delicious! Great tasting dressing and I loved the crunch factor of the almonds (I used slivered, which I fried in a little butter) and the noodles which I bought in a packet already fried as I couldn't find any ramen noodles. <br/><br/>I used a 300 gram bag of baby spinach and halved the dressing ingredients quantity.<br/><br/>Thanks for a very moreish recipe I will be making again soon!"
"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.."
"Loved it! Added a dash of garlic powder and some sliced green onion to the dressing, and included sliced strawberries and fresh pineapple cubes to the salad."
"This is a great, easy salad. I usually make half the dressing recipe and use only 3 tbs sugar."
"Mmmmmmmm.....we really enjoyed this salad. I especially loved the "crispies"....yummy. The dressing is sweet and sour and the crispies added the perfect crunch. Thank you so much for sharing this salad with us."
"Yum! I didn't have any almonds but I did have some chopped up cahews, and they worked great. I cut back a little on the oil since I wanted more tang and added orange pieces. I am bringing it to my in-laws so I'll find out how it goes over with a group...but I loved sampling it as I made it!"
"Oh, wow, this was delicious! I had a bag of spinach that needed to be used up and I'm not normally a fan of spinach salads so I was sort of dreading having to eat it so it wouldn't go to waste. I left out the almonds simply because I didn't have any, but everything else was the same. I may just start eating spinach more often now!"
"YUMMY! So very easy and it presents well, too. I served the dressing on the side so that if I had leftovers, it wouldn't be soggy. Also I tossed the spinach with some fresh sliced strawberries and it was heavenly."
"I didnt follow exactly(I add an orange in pieces,and didnt have any almonds) but i think this recipe allows changes (as long as you keep the dressing exact)and still is yummy. my husband really liked it,and he doesnt like spinach or anything green. thanks mary anne!"
"I read through the reviews first, so I used olive oil instead of the veggie oil. Since I did not have any ramen noodles, I used bamboo shoots and mandarin oranges. I soaked the bamboo shoots in the dressing for a few minutes because they were too bland. I also substituted four packets of Splenda for the sugar. It was great, thanks, Mary Anne!"
"This was very good. I am trying to eat more leafy greens. This is a keeper. I used olive oil instead of vegtable in the dressing. yum!"
"this salad is awesome! we add a little onion and chicken to make it a nice lunch. thanks for a great recipe"
"i love this!! so good and so easy!"
"This is a definate keeper! I didn't have red wine vinegar so I used balsamic vinegar instead and it was delish. Thank you!"
