I followed this recipe exactly as stated and then added the following: Before dressing: bamboo shoots dried cranberries and scallions. After mixing everything with the dressing I topped it with the fried rice noodles you get in a can. This was so tasty and a great way to get your greens and also use up any extra chicken. We'll make it again. Read More

This was okay...The dressing was a bit too salty for our tastes...My suggestion would be to maybe start out with 1-1 1/2 TBS of soy sauce and taste it first...add more if needed..I should have done that:( Read More

OMG! I just made this I mean I am eating it as I type this. It tastes just like Chinese should taste like. It was so simple and I had all of the ingredients in my cabinet. I follwed the recipe exactly except for the cilantro I used green onion instead. My four year old is even eating it!!!!! Read More

This recipe nailed it. It's exactly how I expect Chinese chicken salad to taste. I left out the cilantro (I'm allergic) and used slightly less soy sauce. I'm so thrilled not to have to buy those overpriced salad mix bags anymore! Read More

Absolutely delicious! I used shredded rotisserie chicken and low-sodium soy sauce and omitted the cilantro. I also added some mandarin oranges and topped it with some toasted slivered almonds. As the name says it's quick and it's oh so good! Read More

Pretty darn good overall. The cilantro made such a difference in this salad. It was great. Even so it felt like it needed a little bit of something else so we added mandarin oranges but it still needed something...maybe craisins or something like that. Read More

This salad was great! It tasted just like a chinese salad out of a restaurant! To add a little bit of flair I bought fried wonton strips from a local Chinese restaurant. It received raved reviews. Read More

Pretty good stuff! My bag of salad was 10 oz- but I left the dressing amounts the same- maybe I shouldn't have! I used pre-cooked grilled chicken strips from Costco- very good. This has a strong soy flavor but maybe because I didn't use enough salad! Definitely don't toss the salad with the dressing unless all will be eaten immediately. Otherwise keep them separate to serve individually. This was good for my low carb diet.(used Splenda) Read More

This was delicious! I changed the dressing to 2 tablespoons soy sauce 1 tablespoon olive oil 1 tablespoon sesame oil and I seasoned the chicken with a seasoning before I roasted it. Used a mixture of lettuce cucumber and tomato along with the cilantro. Can't wait to make this again! Read More
