This recipe is a keeper! I DID use 1 whole chopped red pepper and instead of lemon pepper, I used 1/4 tsp. Old Bay seasoning! I used red wine vinegar, 3 garlic cloves, minced, 3/4 tsp. salt, but kept the amount of snow peas, cauliflower, water chestnuts, vegetable oil, sesame seeds, sugar, lemon juice the same! I used the entire amount of dressing in this salad! Thank you, Sue Braunschweig, for your recipe! delowenstein
