"I LOVE this chicken salad. This will forever replace my usual recipe. My local store doesn't carry bean sprouts so I had to do without. I don't care for peanuts that much and had to use the honey roasted kind but they were excellent in this salad. It's also great just on plain bread."

"Within days of receiving my new S&D issue, I tried this recipe. I was a bit skeptical about the sprouts and peanuts (my husband isn't a big fan of either), but I tried it anyway. I'm so glad that I did. My husband raved about it and even my 7 yr. old son liked it. It has a nice, subtle Asian taste to it that I'll try to accentuate more next time I make it by using a homemade soy sauce/ginger/mayo combo that I have left over from a different dish."

"My husband Loved this!!! He gave it two thumbs up and a definite "Do over". Exellent recipe. We used thin sandwich buns (no pita bread in my rural area) and also added bean sprouts to the mix"
