This was the perfect salad for a weekend gathering of friends. OMG, it fed at least 18 adults as a side salad! Everybody was asking for the recipe. Will definitely be making this for other get-togethers.

I made this over the weekend for my mother in law’s b-day and everyone loved it! It’s a cold, fresh salad that was perfect in the Oklahoma heat! It definately feeds more than 6 if you are using it as a side dish. Thanks Ree!

OH MY OH MY!!!!This is a fantastic salad.I just whipped it up for my daughter and I for lunch.I just added the veggies I had on hand (I had most of them just not the sprouts or spinach) so I substituted them with lightly cooked mushrooms and raw sliced carrots.So good mmmmm :)

I really wanted to love this salad like so many of the other reviewers, but I didn’t. I brought the salad to a work potluck. Everyone said they liked it, but it wasn’t a ‘recipe swap’ kind of dish. I think you need to love ginger and cilantro to love this dish. If I had removed those two ingredients, I probably would have liked it more. As the others have said, this recipe makes an enormous quantity. I didn’t need ALL of the cucumber, sprouts, and spinach either. I may try to experiment with the salad dressing to suit my taste. Otherwise, I probably won’t make this again. Ah, well. Thanks for the recipe, Ree. That was the first time for me to use Napa Cabbage, and I did like that! :)

This is my favorite salad ever! I agree with others who say that the cashews really make this dish.
