This Asian-inspired dinner salad has terrific crunch, thanks to sugar snap peas and napa cabbage. Give the dressing a kick of heat by adding a bit of sambal oelek, an Indonesian hot sauce that you can find in most large supermarkets and Asian grocery stores.

This is been my go to salad recipe this summer. Parties Potlucks family gatherings or even just to keep in the fridge for easy meals. Everyone loves it. I add thin rice noodles that I soaked according to package directions for salad. It really bulks up the salad and just makes it that more special. Read More

I thought this was an amazing update of the May/June 2009 update of May/June 1998 chicken/cabbage salads. The mango replaced the sweetness of the sugar that was added to the older dressing. The mango I got was not at all tough or stringy and was just perfect. I didn't add the hot sauce. I used some leftovers for my lunch the next day and it tasted great but was getting a little wetter.

I thought this was pretty good but my family didn't like it very much. They just didn't care for the flavor combination. I got a mango but when I tasted it it had no flavor so I decided to leave it out. The salad still needed a touch of sweet so I added mandarin oranges instead and that flavor combination was good.
