I would add some Chinese sesame oil and use seasoned rice vinegar rather than plain. Top with toasted sesame seeds and chopped green onions. Yum!

The worst recipe. Without the sauce it was good, but with it, it was just unpalatable. Will never ever try again.

I've tried a lot of recipes from this website, and this was by far one of my favorites. Very easy to make and cheap too.

The peanut sauce was good except that the vinegar flavor was too strong. I would try it again with less than the listed 1/4 cup rice vinegar. I also did not have cabbage, but it was nice without it.
