    I did not make any changes to this recipe. Hubby and I thought it was great! Quick and easy and very filling. I used the packaged grilled chicken stips, which made it very quick to make. You get a whole days worth of veggies in a tastey salad! - 12/30/08

    This was fabulous! I added chopped cashews for a little extra crunch, and stuffed it into a whole wheat pita. I can't wait for lunch tomorrow! - 5/25/09

    I don't change the recipe and make a whole batch to have for lunch for the week. It tastes even better the second day. I just add the tangerine right before I eat it. - 1/20/09

    It's simple to puchase coleslaw (shredded cabbage and carrots) and sub that, which I do all the time. Wishbone makes the spray Asian nonfat dressing, and I usually omit the cilantro and cucumber. I like the crunch of the cabbage in this recipe and have it at least once a week! - 12/27/07

    I would call this "Asian Chicken Coleslaw" as it is very cabbage-heavy like a slaw is. I don't like coleslaw but love this recipe. This is something I would share at a picnic. Could not find lowfat Asian dressing so I used "Kraft Creamy Poppyseed" dressing instead-not as healthy but yum! - 11/7/08

    Loved Loved Loved It! For the Asian Dressing, I used Thai Peanut Sauce, I mixed in some soy sauce, a couple of drops of sesame oil and 2 packets of Truvia or stevia...this made it a little more sweet without adding any calories. Delicious! - 7/12/09

    I've made this several times now. I like to cook extra chicken and keep in the freezer for when I want to make this salad. It's perfect for lunch on a hot summer day. - 12/27/08

    Delicious! Takes time to make, as you have to shred so many vegetables, but well worth the effort! And the portion is nice and large, it works as lunch. Packs well for the next day, as the flavors have time to meld. Yummy! - 8/1/07

    Looooved it! I'm a lover of coleslaw to begin with, and the Asian twist just makes it all that better. I omitted the cilantro just because of personal preference. Really enjoyed this! - 3/15/10

    This was a FANTASTIC summer salad! I spinkled in some red pepper flakes instead of black pepper, and topped it off with a bit of sunflower seeds. I also used a gluten free dressing, so my DH is now able to enjoy! Thanks for such a GREAT recipe! :) - 9/1/08
