Made this for St. Patty's day, but it really didn't go with the other Irish food (Irish soda bread, Irish Stew, etc) It was very pretty and also very good; however, it was definitely ASIAN not Irish. I think the directions could be written more coherently as well. I give it four stars because it tasted great and I do plan to bring it to summer get-togethers - makes a huge amount, I'd say it serves at least 12-16 as a side dish. However, I wouldn't advise others to make this for St. Patty's day and the directions aren't very clear.

Very nice! I didn't have horseradish and used seasoned salt instead of soy sauce. A nice tasty dressing on this crisp salad. I served it on a hot summer day with grilled salmon. Thanks for the post.

Actually I've made this for years. It's really Chinese Cabbage Salad. Try using SESAME OIL in place of olive oil. It really is a very good salad, especially with Lo Mein. or other Chinese dishes.

THis was a wonderful salad! It is so colorful and beautiful and has such an explosion of tastes and color! I did add one-half of a finely-chopped red pepper and green pepper which added to the color. I'd never used crystallized ginger before, so this was a real treat for me. Thanks, RitaL for another great recipe!

This was a salad with a lot of interesting flavours but I didn't find it worked. Maybe it was the lack of oil in the dressing which I think would have helped to bring all the different notes together. With a bit of work on the dressing, this would be very good.
