2 Notes

  1. Ken Alger

    To reduce the ‘heat’ in this dish, add 1/2 cup of sour cream to the remaining dressing and toss into the salad – makes it into a creamier ‘cole slaw’ type dish.

  2. Ken Alger

    With the Chicken Skewers this is a full dinner dish. Without the Chicken skewers it is a great salad to accompany any asian dinner.
