"I think this is a very good salad, but I would have liked it better if I'd not put in so much celery, and maybe added some grated carrot as a replacement. Also, I don't like the "raw" taste of uncooked Chinese pea pods, so I'd probably like it better if I were to blanche them just long enough to take away that taste, but still leave them tender crisp. Even regular frozen peas that have been thawed would be a good substitute."

"I make this recipe all the time. It is absolutely delicious. It also keeps well if you don't put the dressing on the entire salad, but apply it separately."
