Absolutely LOVE this salad! I used a combination of peanuts and about a tablespoon of peanut butter. I will make it again and again!

I didn't have Asain Garlic Sauce and I made my own. Don't skip the peanuts bc it changes the entire dynamic of the recipe. 1 tablespoons rice vinegar 2 tablespoons granulated sugar 2 tablespoons soy sauce 2 teaspoons chinese rice wine or 2 teaspoons dry sherry 1/4-1/2 teaspoon chili sauce (Sriracha to taste) 1/4 teaspoon sesame oil 1 1/2 teaspoons cornstarch 1 tablespoon water 1 tablespoon vegetables or 1 tablespoon peanut oil 3 -4 medium garlic cloves, finely chopped

Tasty and spicy. I mostly followed the recipe except used 1/2 tablespoon of fresh coriander and a teaspoon of organic peanut butter (made from just peanuts) in the dressing instead of chopped peanuts because that's what I had. Next time I will use more of both: maybe a full tablespoon of fresh coriander and a tablespoon of peanut butter (if I don't have peanuts). The peanuts are an important part of the taste. We ate this as a side salad to burgers, and it was very good. I imagine it would also taste great on rice.

These were okay. It had a balance issue with it but didn't want to mess with it. I didn't have peanuts so that was the only ingredient missing and also altered the chili garlic.

I added red onion, chicken, and cooked chow mein noodles. It's so good. The only problem was I didn't have enough for leftovers. I'm going to double it next time so I can enjoy it for lunch the next day as well.

Since most recipes tell you to saute garlic for about 30 seconds, I cut back on the time for fear that 5 minutes would turn the garlic bitter. No doubt about it, this salad does have a kick. If you're in the middle on spiciness, you may want to add half a tablespoon of the chili-garlic sauce, taste, and then add the rest if you feel you need it. Same comment applies to the addition of the red pepper flakes. This is a pretty nice Asian cuke salad, and I definitely liked the flavor of the coriander which is a spice I've not used often.
