This is sooo good! It always gets rave reviews. I like to add the dressing just before serving because it does tend to get soggy. Read More

Good. However I think that you could definitely let the flavors meld together longer with the sauce than just the 1 hour before. Also I added water chestnuts and omitted bean sprouts- which was a good call for our family. Lastly I would add more garlic to the sauce lessen the amount of celery and green onions- since those two veggies somewhat overpour the dish. But other than that it's a very tasty rice dish. Will definitely try again with a few changes. Read More

I bring this salad to every potluck I go to and everyone always asks for the recipe. I sometimes alter the recipe to make it different by adding a little sesame oil and using different vegetables. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm Read More

I omitted the spinach and upped the rice to 1c. When I added the oil/soy sauce/garlic mix-even with all the veggies/rice-it was too salty and oily for me. I then cooked another cup of rice..let cool and then added it. This gave it a neat effect b/c the soy sauce mix had already "darkened" the rice I had mixed in and the addition of the new white rice gave it a neat look. Now with the 2c cooked rice it was much less salty and I was able to enjoy it better. However not my favorite salad recipe but still a nice idea and change from the norm. Thanks Teri. Read More
