"When I worked as a cook on the ferries that travel between Bellingham, Washington and southeastern Alaska. I served this salad to our passengers and crew, and it always received compliments," notes Patricia Morgan of Haines, Alaska. "It's best chilled overnight."

"Delicious...I made some substitutions and adjusted the recipe toserve 2. I used sugar snap peas instead of snow peas which are hard to find at my store. Added a bit of sugar to the dressing and let it sit at room temp before serving. A chilled salad didn't sound good to me. Was delicious."

"This was certainly a healthy and nutritious meal, but I believe I would prefer it as a hot dish rather than a salad, stir-frying the veggies and meat. I followed the recipe to a T, and chilled like it says. It just left me cold, pardon the pun. But I did enjoy the sauce very much."

"Very tasty! Eliminated the zucchini and substituted cucumber. (That's what I had on hand.) Delish!"
