This salad was outrgaeous!!! I followed the recipe EXACTLY as indicated however I did blanch the broccoli for a few minutes. This gave it a bright green color and nicer texture. For those people who are concerned about fat grams follow these simple steps: substitute some water for the oil in the dressing use 1 TBS of butter for sauteeing and used baked ramen noodles instead.Another option would be simply sprinkle them on top without frying them at all. Thank you for the recipe!!! Read More

The taste was indeed "the best". One of the all-time best salads I have ever made or tasted! However when I later checked the nutritional information I was appalled to see that this salad has almost 600 calories and 50 grams of fat PER SERVING!!!! That's terrible! As much as I loved this salad I probably won't make it again because of the terrible nutritional value. So sorry that's for sure! Read More

This recipe was so simple to make & delicious. I purchased pre-cut & washed romaine lettuce & pre-chopped walnuts to make it even speedier. Since I was taking this to a friend's house I kept the vegetables dressing & roasted walnuts/noodles separate from each other & assembled it all right before dinner. By the end of dinner the entire salad was gone! Read More

This salad is quite addictive! I substituted almonds for the walnuts and added balsamic vinegar to the dressing. I also put some chopped carrots and some bean sprouts since I had them around. Cutting the oil in half made this a little lower in fat.I will definitely make this again! Read More

Very easy and delicious! It makes ALOT of dressing so I didn't use all of it. Just an FYI - leftovers are not as good as the next day because the crispy noodles get soggy. Read More
