    Very nice salad. It's not quite as "Asian " as I would think it should be, so I added extra (fresh) ginger. I also added thinly sliced cucumber and used sliced scallions as a garnish. Marinating the chicken is imperative. Overall, this a I nice, easy salad meal. Thanx!

    I have to agree with Jubes. I think that marinading the chicken over night would of made the salad even better. Not that I didnt love it because it was wonderful. I put dried cranberries and almonds in the salad,, This is a 5 stars for me

    * Reviewed for ZWT6 Whine and Cheese Gang * Totally loved it. Delicious. Minimal ingredients, minimal prep and cooking time. I prepared the marinade/dressing and cooked the chicken last order to have a quick meal to put together for a busy family Friday night tonight. I actually thought the dressing had improved with the 24hours. I also used an extra marinated/cooked chiken breast for recipe#373485. A great recipe Syd- thanks for sharing. And it was great to cook a recipe that I didn't need to make any chages at all to be gluten-free suitable :) Photos also being posted

    Soo simple to make, and delicious! I couldn't do the grill this time (buried under all the snow!), but I am eager to try it that way once the weather is nicer. Loved the flavor from the dressing/marinade. I added just a splash of sesame oil as others suggested. It was great. Thanks for sharing!

    I really enjoyed this salad. The only "problem" I had was that it was almost too vinegary for me. However, I used a cheap red wine vinegar and that may have been the problem. Will make this again and try using a better vinegar. I also used a sesame oil and canalo oil mixture. Thanks for posting such a simple and good salad recipe.
