"We really enjoyed this salad. I doubled it for 3 of us including my teen son. Next time I might need to triple it. I topped it with chopped green onions."

"The recipe was really tasty. Not a true Thai flavor (I lived in Thailand for five years) but the dressing was delightful. After cooking the steak, I chopped it into bite-sized pieces for easier eating, and I chopped the nuts. Next time I will add chopped green onions on top."
