    This was good. I added some canned mandarin oranges, and chow mein noodles. But like others, the dressing just did not go. It needed to be a bit sweeter. Something was lacking.... the cilantro was more Mexican than Asian to me.

    For a yummy variation I add 1 T. sesame seed oil to the dressing,add some crispy wonton strips, omit shredded lettuce, scoop up into lettuce cups instead. Even picky kids dig it!

    Put this salad ontop of Soba noodles that have been lightly tossed with sesame oil for an even more filling meal.

    Great timing, I finally purchased a mandoline over the weekend and I used it to prepare this salad. I added green peppers and to the dressing added crushed red pepper, heat is always a bonus for flavor. I roasted some chicken breasts with EVOO and S
