"This was fabulous! Super easy to make and very refreshing. My whole family enjoyed the blend of flavors, including my two teenage boys who aren't big salad fans!"

"This was very tasty. Didn't change it at all. My family's only complaint was that there wasn't more! I guess I will have to double it next time."

"This salad was really good, but I have to admit that I changed the dressing a little bit, because 1/4 cup sugar is WAY too much for European palates. I only used 2 Tbsp of sugar, and added mustard powder and parsley for a bit of flavour, it was kind of bland without it."

"I've made this recipe numerous for family and friends, and everyone always enjoys it! It's also delicious when Napa cabbage is substituted for the romaine."

"I brought this recipe in to church for a potluck. Since it's Lenten season, we couldn't have any meat.. or dairy products until Easter. I used canola oil to stir fry the ramen noodles and walnuts.. my cousin even mentioned that you can stir fry them in a dry pan (just for a shorter period of time). This went over very well! I hardly had anything to bring back home. :)"
