    I made this recipe for a very un-picky family, and nobody really cared for it. I LOVED the look and flavor BEFORE I added the dressing. But the dressing made it look very unappetizing, and muddied the flavors. I plan to try the basic salad recipe, but add a brighter dressing -- probably citrus. - 1/11/09

    I really enjoyed this salad and will make again. I did add a fair amount of minced fresh ginger to my soy sauce and let it sit for a few hours before mixing the salad. I love ginger and think it did add to the dish. - 1/25/09

    I prepared this salad with no substitutions. I liked the flavor and variety of ingredients but will cut the recipe in half before making it again as there are only 2 in my household. I would also reduce the dressing ingredients by at least 1/3. Best eaten day it is made. - 1/10/09

    Absolutely loved this salad. The combination of veggies with fruit is wonderful! I've made it a couple of time, substituting whatever fruit looked best at the market - papaya or melon works well, too! - 10/12/08

    I thought this was a refreshing salad, almost like a salsa. I used it for a side to salmon and it was very good. I think next time I will cut down on the dressing just a bit. I used some grated ginger to flavor the soy sauce. YUM! - 7/18/08

    I LOVED this salad! Top rated for taste! I only had regular soy sauce, but I added a TBL. of chopped ginger for flavor to make up for it. You just can't keep it in the fridge for too long because of the avocado, but it will go fast! LOVED IT. - 7/15/07

  • After reading the reviews I made a different dressing using some of the reserved liquid from the mandarin oranges, the juice of one lime, 1 T extra virgin olive oil, fresh ginger and shallot. It was a refreshing burst of flavor! - 2/2/10

    Cilantro is the leaves of the coriander plant therefore it gives a slight anise flavor. Jimica (the "J" is pronounced like "H") is a root vegetable also with a slight anise (licorice) taste. Goes very well with the oranges. - 1/10/09

    Sounds like a great salad will try with pork as an earlier suggestion, but what is classed as stir-fry sauce, also what is jicama as it was also in a suggestion. Living in Australia we don't have these ingredients, would love to try something similar in place of them, any suggestions. - 1/10/08

    To MBJoseph and others: leave the avocado pit in the bowl and it will keep the salad from turning brown. I am going to try this soon and add diced jicama for more fiber. I bet it is good along side pork chops or chicken. - 10/22/07
