OK this was just YUM-OH! I'm bringing it to work tomorrow for a Chinese Pot Luck we are having. I added a bag of brocolli slaw, sliced red pepper and scallions for the veggies. I also increased the dressing, used balsamic vinigar and bottled hot sause VS. using white vinager & red pepper flakes. - 9/22/11
I used some frozen green beans with baby carrots for the veggies and it was still good! I can't wait to make this again with some broccoli and cabbage. I had to change a few things in the dressing, (ginger powder for fresh and ground red pepper for the flakes) but it was still amazing. - 7/5/11
Ooooo... SO very delish! I made some for a Saturday night potluck. Not a lot of peanut fans in the crowd, so lucky me... I got to bring some leftovers home to enjoy this week. (Those that tried it, loved it, though.) I used the Naturally More peanut butter brand for a healthier dish. - 7/19/09
