I make this all the time for my family when I have leftover roast chicken. I use the following substitutions: Peanut oil instead of vegetable oil leftover roast chicken instead of canned chicken and toasted sesame seeds instead of almonds with a little sesame oil sprinkled on to taste. Everyone always raves about it. Read More

It was okay. I would have preferred a sweeter dressing as well. The dressing was just okay on the bland side. I added canned mandarins to wake up the flavor along with some chow mein noodles to give it a crunch. Was pretty good but I've tried other chinese salads that had more of an oriental flavor.

First off using pre-shredded cabbage and a bag of salad mix saved me a lot of time! I made the recipe following the directions but omitted the cilantro because I didn't have any on hand. When I tasted it it was a very savory taste as opposed to a sweet and sour taste you would expect. I sprinkled sugar over it and kept mixing it in until it tasted the way I liked it. It worked very well. Some reviewers have commented that it is too oily. I used a large bag of cabbage and a small bag of salad mix. It was not oily at all this way. IF you are afraid it might be too oily for you add a little dressing at a time to suit your taste. Overall a tasty and easy salad! P.S. So I'm eating this salad and thinking to myself "Gee I wonder if adding mandarine oranges would be good?". So I frantically look through the cupboard for oranges and to my dismay there are none. However there is a can of pineapple. So I added a whole can plus some juice and wow! This is now a FIVE STAR SALAD!!! Read More

Excellent recipe. I tried it for the first time at my first office potluck for Valentine's Day and everyone who tried it absolutely loved it. I used red cabbage for more color and I added a can of drained water chestnuts because I had it in the cupboard. Read More

This recipe turned out very well. I used only 1/2 cup of vegetable oil along with 1/4 cup sesame oil to give it a more oriental flavor. I also tossed in some toasted sesame seeds. Read More

Great tasting salad!! I used leftover grilled chicken instead of canned and added 2 tsp of sesame oil to the dressing. I did not have any cilantro or almonds so I substituted unsalted peanuts YES peanuts and it was wonderful. The taste and textures are very satisfying. I served it with individual plates of seasonal fruit and got rave reviews. My 4 year old ate it and that is saying alot.. Even better the next day even though there was only 1 small serving left... TRY THIS Read More

I made this recipe for me and my husband and we both loved it. I didn't add the onions or cilantro. I substituted the canned chicken for cooked and cubed skinless boneless chicken breast. I added some chow mein noodles and it was great! Read More

This was pretty good but I would have preferred a slightly sweeter dressing. It was also a little salty. Read More

Lots of chopping but I guess that's to be expected. The dressing separates but the flavor was great. Read More
