Dried Beef Cheese Ball
I thought I'd made a mistake, with so many high ratings, yet mine tasted NASTY! I double-checked my measurements against the recipe - same sizes/weight. I did noticed after the fact the jar said to soak meat in warm water for recipes, which was NOT included in the directions. I'm guessing this is one of those dips that one grows up on? So if you're like me and didn't grow up eating this, test it in private first. Because I had to add another block of cream cheese, then a bit of sugar to offset the still-super-salty taste before it was even barely edible. If soaking makes the difference, then this recipe did NOT say to do so.

Chinese Cabbage Salad II
I've made a similiar salad and was asked to make it again that same week. Haven't used broccoli in it, but it sounds great, and I'll try it next time. Sometimes I'm out of sesame seeds (which are cheaper in the Mexican food section than the spice section), so I've used sesame oil, or tahini and lowered the oil amount accordingly. It worked, although we missed having the seeds LOL I used pecans just because I have a pecan tree, and it was great. The recipe I originally tried used more black pepper, so if you're into it, try adding more. I forgot to add the green onions once, and we noticed immediately, so don't leave that out.

Asian Salad
I've been making a similiar recipe that I found recently; it has less butter and oil. It also had a shredded carrot, and 1/2-1 tsp of black pepper , which we liked. It didn't have soy sauce though, but I bet that would be tasty and will try it next time. I ran out of sesame seeds once and substituted with some tahini in the dressing. Tasted fine, but I prefer the seeds if given the choice.
