I pretty much made this recipe as the directions indicated and my husband & I were pleased with the way it turned out. The dressing is unexpectedly delicious, I'll be using the leftovers to marinate shrimp for tomorrow's dinner.
I think the only thing that I was disappointed in was the texture (kind of slimy), but that may have been a result of how thinly I sliced all the vegetables. I think next time I'll add fresh pineapple (though, on second thought it may overpower it) and maybe some almond slivers or soy beans to add more crunch.
All in all, a very flavorful salad that we'll make our own. BTW, we paired it with spring rolls to make it a heartier, albeit, fresh, dinner.
I made this recipe with cold poached salmon (poached in white wine) instead of canned salmon. WONDERFUL! No way would I use canned salmon!
Absolutely delicious! The dressing had such a unique flavor that I had to make another batch to pour over the already delicious tasting salad. The fish and veggies were a perfect combination for a side dish salad.
This is a go-to salad for us. We make the dressing as-is, but we add about 1/2 tbsp of soy sauce for just a little extra salt/flavor kick. We sub the lime juice with lemon juice (whatever is available), and the greens can be subbed with any lettuce you have on hand. If salmon is hard to come by (ick, canned salmon??), some Costco's carry Salmon Patties that we like to grill up and use in various salad recipes. Or even grilling some chicken (salt, black pepper, garlic powder, and a glaze of the teriyaki sauce + honey at the end) = really tasty!
