    Super easy and very good. I stir-fried some chicken to help encourage my kids to eat it - and they did! Will definitely make again.

    This recipe was great but I will admit, I tweaked it. I thought there was too much going on and it added a lot of extra fats (sunflower seeds). I omitted the celery, carrot, sunflower seed and chestnuts. I brought the oil down to 3 TBSP and I swapped mandarin oranges for the fresh. I also added some more toasted almonds. I cut the fat in half and did not sacrafice the flavor.

    This was so simple. I cut everything up before going off to work and then had my husband add the dressing just before I got home. Very tasty, simple and great flavor. It lasted for 2 meals.

    The dressing on this slaw is the perfect blend of spicy, salty, and sweet. I loved the combination of crunchy veggies, though I omitted the water chestnuts and green onions. I also decided to forgo the sunflower seeds, almonds, and crunchy noodles and topped the slaw with toasted sesame seeds, instead.

    Very good! Love the oranges and the crunch of the noodles. Plus, i love the extra kick from the red pepper!

    LOVE it... one of my new favorites. I made it exactly as described and wouldn't change a thing.

    I also omitted the sunflower seeds and the ramen noodles to lower the fat. I also used 1/4 cup of oil instead of 1/3 C. I used a broccoli slaw mix and some coleslaw mix to eliminate all the chopping. It was quite good. The dressing is very good. I would make this again. I might use chow mein noodles next time and eliminate the almonds.

    Nice & healthy! Great for a light dinner during the hot summer. I added a red pepper and omitted all nuts (allergy). I totally forgot about the Ramen & will add it tomorrow for some crunch The dressing is good but I'll probably run out. Store bought yummy ginger dressing would work nicely. I also poached a few chicken breasts and added that to it. A rotisserie chicken would work just as well. Will definitely make this again, it's a wonderful veggie boost.

    I followed the recipe though doubled it. A huge pottery bowl was mounded up with the bright colored vegetables. Dressing wasn't added until just before serving at the Easter Buffet for a group of 20 friends. Everyone loved this salad: the bowl was emptied in the first half hour. It has just the right crunchiness, saltiness and sweetness. Definitely will make it again.
