    Outstanding! I quadrupled the recipe for a potluck & it was gobbled up faster than any other dish there. I used the lower amount of salt as per recipe & was glad I did. I made it a second time & followed another reviewers recommendation to use coconut aminos. Then I used several drops of liquid Stevia instead of honey so it woul be sugar free & it was awesome. I will be making this regularly ,highly recommend!

    Love this salad--I always used to order it at sushi restaurants, but it's so fast and easy, I now make it all the time at home. I doubled the recipe, using about a teaspoon of sugar, and it was just right. Also, I used coconut aminos instead of soy sauce (lower in sodium and soy free)-- this is a great summertime side-dish.

    So, so good! The perfect compliment to so many Asian meals. I toasted the sesame seeds, but otherwise followed the recipe down the line. Thanks for posting.
