Pea, Jicama, and Cashew Salad

Rated as 4.31 out of 5 Stars

"This is a recipe my boyfriend's mom gave to me. I like to add the ginger because it gives it a nice zest. It's great for potlucks and you can adjust the seasoning to your taste. The cashews and toasted noodles add a terrific crunch!"

  2. Combine the peas, jiciama, water chestnuts, celery, green onions, and cashews in the bowl containing the toasted noodles. Pour the dressing overtop, and toss to mix immediately prior to serving.

This was just strange for me. I can't say it was bad (probably because I eat almost anything) but it wasn't good. I made it for company and all agreed "this is weird".

This was delicious! I omitted the water chestnuts, because I didn't have any, and added shredded carrots in its place. Added nice color to an overall lovely mix. Didn't have the peanut oil, but ...

Fresh and light (words I don't often use to describe asian food!). The Chili Flakes are the X Factor! Delicious!

Love this salad! I substituted black bean pasta for angel hair. Good enough for a dinner party.

Super yummy and different than other types of salads.
