Salad shouldn't be this complicated. It's a salad people. If you can't make it in five minutes you are spending way too much time. Pros: Tasty Cons: Too much prep dressing is beyond salty too expensive
Tastes like the real thing! We live far from any Vietnamese restaurants so this recipe filled the bill! I made a half recipe used rice noodles lettuce green pepper snow peas sliced carrot celery and cilantro (uncooked) topped it with peanuts and it was delicious! I liked the tahini better than other recipes that used peanut butter I subbed olive oil for canola and used dried ginger and garlic and it still came out delicious. Pros: Tasty
Minimize the Oil Overall this was a delight! 3 tbspn canola oil to cook ginger - we could have done without. I felt like I was eating an oil based dressing in the end (which I personally don't like). Dumped it and started over. Soooo much better w/out it. The flavors were amazing. Used 1 tbsp each toasted sesame seeds and crushed (salted) peanuts. (great suggestions by previous postings) Didn't have scallions- used chopped red onions and red bellpepper; omitted radishes. No chile-garlic paste so 1 1/2 tsp regular pepper mixed with minced garlic. Not big on spicy so it worked out great. Very versatile recipe. Almost any ingredient can be substituted and almost any veggie could work. Definitely in my EW Recipe Catalog! Pros: Very Flavorful Cons: Too Oily
Fantastic!!! Absolutely delicious! We use chopped peanuts to top it off instead of sesame seeds. To make it even easier bottled ginger and garlic can be used with no difference in taste. Sometimes we include radishes and sometimes not. Great leftovers too! Pros: Tasty Healthy relatively easy to prepare Cons: none
Incredibly delicious salad! This was so good that my husband and I almost ate the entire recipe for dinner. We added peanuts to top it off. Can't wait to make it again! Pros: Just the right amount of spiciness. Nice blend of tastes.
This recipe sounds very inviting but with ingredients I do not have access to in a small rural community. I doubt that the whole recipe is freezable or I'd go ahead and make it once obtaining the ingredients as I live alone and would have to reduce the ortions significantly.
The vegies combo were fine but the dressing was too salty. We had to add another 1/4 cup or more of rice vinegar to dilute the soy sauce plus more sesame oil and brown sugar to make it palatable. I added more different vegies and more meat and it tasted fine.
