Amazing flavor I skipped the bamboo shoots and still had an amazing flavor profile. Added a cooked sliced chicken breast to the skillet to soak up some of the yummy sauce and served mixed together.

This salad was easy to throw together and I enjoyed the spicy nutty flavor but the canned bamboo shoots (which thankfully were overlooked the first time i made it) completely ruined it for me; it tasted as if someone had urinated in the salad and i couldn't choke it down...very good without the bamboo shoots though.

Pros: Colorful and versatile Cons: None Read More
