This was a tasty change-of-pace for us. The asparagus and avocado were different, but they were good with the overall flavors. Didn't add the spicy element to the dressing, but we didn't miss it. This was even good the next day - I refreshed it with some fresh cabbage and crispies for the top. I'll probably make this again.

This is a great salad, kind of time consuming to make, but worth it! the dressing is outstanding.

I have also made this many times- each time the salad is a little different but it always turns out great. It's the dressing that really makes it.

Delicious exactly as is. Since finding this recipe I make it once a week. Also works well with rotisserie chicken and grilled chicken. If I have them on hand I throw in snap peas or endamame. Yum!

Used chow mein noodles since I had those on hand, otherwise, didn't change a thing. The dressing is to die for. Yum.

asparagus, avocado, and orange were a nice variation for this standard salad. the spiciness of the dressing was a good addition. a little time consuming in prep work.

Delicious. Added chopped English cucumber and used egg roll instead of wonton wrappers (because I already had them on hand). The dressing was especially delish ;-).

Though the recipe is yummy, I gave it 3 stars. If you follow this recipe word for word, too much time has been spent IMO. I followed the Notes suggestions to save time, plus substituted bell peppers/cucumbers for the asparagus. Used pre-shredded cabbage and rotisserie chicken breasts as well. If/when I get asparagus, I think it will taste better roasted than raw. I didn't find the dressing hot spicy; it gave it a nice zing. Loving the wonton noodle topping.

My whole family (3 kids aged 15, 11 and 3 plus husband) loved this. My son, who doesn't usually enthuse too much about food, keeps bugging me to make it again. So refreshing in the hot weather, and the little bit of sweetness is appealing to the kids. We left the chilli out of the dish for the littlies, and my husband and I sprinkled chilli flakes on ours. Variations: I have since done this using tiny florets of raw broccoli instead of asparagus and using toasted almonds instead of won tons or noodles. Quicker and healthier and still tastes fantastic!
