    The peanut sauce recipe is awesome - tastes like something out of a Thai restaurant! I used fresh peas in their pod instead of edamame and it turned out great. I will def make this recipe again!

    This is my new favorite salad! I added chicken the second time and that just made it even better.

    Love this salad! Twice made now, next time I'll leave the cilantro out of the dressing so it'll last longer in the fridge. There is plenty of cilantro in the salad itself so it's not missed. A keeper!

    We loved the dressing. I do think the salad needs an apple and some nuts.

    Spot on dressing! Instead of canola and red pepper flake, I used sesame and chili oil WOW! A paper copy of this is going in my book, NOW!

    This is a delicious salad, and we just added chicken. Even my 13 year old who rarely eats veggies said, this is actually pretty good!

    This is totally, deliciously addictive! I substituted almond butter for peanut butter, stevia for sugar and parsley instead of cilantro (personal preference). I wish I would have made a double or triple the amount of dressing to keep on hand.

    Always great and holds up for next day
    This was fantastic! We made a few tweaks as some others had suggested. We substituted 1/2 TBS of sesame oil for 1/2 TBS of the canola oil and cut back a smidge on the red pepper flakes due to our heat preferences. Everything else was according to the recipe and it was great! Some suggested making more dressing but we had plenty and had some left over. Plan to try leftover dressing mixed with plain ramen noodles.

    Perfect for meal prepping, dressing keeps well in a jar in the fridge! Just roasted some chicken breast to go on top and it was perfect.
