Wasabi is the Japanese version of horseradish. It comes in powder form, and is available in Asian groceries and some supermarkets. It's green and very fiery. If you prefer, you can use prepared horseradish instead

I have looked at this recipe many times but never got up the nerve to make it. The ingredients were so unusual, I think I was nervous. I tried this last night.. finally. What a pleasant surprise. It was quite good. The only change I made was to substitute water chestnuts for mushrooms, since I am not a mushroom fan. Next time I make this, I think I am going to use canned beets, because the cooked beets were a real pain to peel and I got beet water all over the place..lol. I also think adding a few sunflower seeds or slivered almonds would be a nice addition. Read More

I would preheat & get those potatoes & beets in right away, then make the wasabi dressing next time b/c of the lengthy cook time; and the dressing probably doesn't need to sit in the blender for an hour. I used leftover chicken off of a rotisserie chicken--just the white meat--weighing it on a scale until I had the 3/4# and it worked out great. Even my 2 year old appreciated the potatoes, beets & chicken (though he's still not keen on greens). Submitted a photo--you'll need a BIG salad bowl to toss all together without a mess. Bottom line? Worth the time! Delish. Read More
