Ah..is it my imagination or does the lettuce in the pic look like Napa Cabbage, NOT Red Cabbage like what the recipe calls for?

Recipe was good, however I agree the wrong cabbage is in the recipe. Definitely napa and not red cabbage.

Very simple and delicious. This salad is definitely only enough for two adults to have an entree salad. There is NO way it would serve 6, unless you gave them a sieving the size of your palm. I also added red pepper my second time making it and it was delicious!!

I was going to be home all week and wanted a lunch that I could quickly make and have leftovers. This worked out perfect (kept the dressing on the side to avoid salad getting soggy)! First, a comment to other posters. This recipe calls for 1lb of beef. I easily ate off this recipe 4-5 times. 3oz of meat is a correct portion size. It is not healthy to eat 1/2lb of beef in one serving! Add a side item of whole grains or increase the amount of veggies if you feel you are not full/satisfied. I agree the amount of salad is too little and added more to my plate to increase my veggie intake. I love the fresh herbs - it is what made this dish! I would have liked more things in the salad and love the idea about peppers. Next time I will be adding snap peas as well. I also used a bad of coleslaw mix and it really made the prep work easy. I would definitely make this again!

Tasty, but only enough salad for two.

Great weeknight salad! This salad was easy from start to finish (~30 min total) and was very filling though there were no leftovers after feeding only 2 people. I used a small bag of classic coleslaw to speed up prep time and added half of a large green pepper and 2 green onions sliced into thin strips. I also doubled the amount of chile paste and garlic for preference in the dressing. The fresh herbs are a must! I think it would have been a bit bland if those were not mixed into this dish. I would definitely make this salad again with the modifications and possibly cut down a little bit on the soy sauce flavor. Otherwise, this is a good solid meal and it has made the weeknight rotation - enjoy!

Serving size equals 2/3 cup of salad mix? Gimme a break! What's the point of the salad you are only getting minimal veggies? The dressing is quite good though it could be a tad sweeter. For 2 people is used 2 cups slaw mix, 2 cups, sprouts, 2 carrots, the recommended herbs. To this I added 2 sliced radishes,, some sliced green onion. I wished for a red pepper. So it was basically a good starting point.
