"I made this for lunch today, but changed it up a little. I didn't have turkey, so I used grilled chicken and I substituted cashews for the peanuts. I omitted the green onion as I didn't have any on hand. The only complaint that I would have about this is that it was a little on the salty side. If you're watching your sodium intake or just sensitive to salt, I'd recommend using low-sodium soy or use less. Maybe both!?"
