  1. I think the recipe is missing infomration. The recipe includes sauting the noodles sesame seeds and almonds before mixing them with the cabbage. Without that step the recipe isn't good.
  2. I tried this salad over the weekend and found it to be flavorful and light. Very nice change from the traditional salads.
  3. My mom calls this Sumi Salad -- and it's great. She uses regular cabbage but the Napa (or Savoy)is better for soaking up the dressing. We use sliced almonds and RICE VINEGAR. I guess I should just post the whole dang thing.
  4. Great Recipe! I will be making this again. My friend had a similar recipe but hers had carrots and snowpeas in it. I will be adding those next time - I think it will be a nice addition.
  5. This salad is wonderful, but I did not use near the olive oil that was suggested. I also added dry roasted sunflower kernels which were excellent. The dressing is also a great marinade for roasting veggies!
  6. Hi I added a can of drained mandrin orange slices Ummm good
