    Before I made the recipe I didn't realize how much lead time I needed. We liked the recipe but thought it was a lot of work.

    The salad was delicious, but it had too many green onions, and I generally like green onions. It was way better the next day, and next time I'll make it a day in advance. Would be great for a potluck as it could be a side dish, but is filling enough to be an entree.

    Since this recipe made much more than two of us could enjoy, I invited neighbors, forgetting he does not like tofu. However, EVERYONE loved the salad! Although a bit time consuming to make, I will make it again.The flavors and textures were delicious combinations.I followed the recipe with no changes and served it with heirloom tomatoes and corn on the cob - a wonderful late summer meal. I allowed about two hours for the recipe which was just right.

    This recipe tasted delicious! It was a lot of work, but worth the effort.

    My husband didn't think a salad could be a meal, but he loved it. Kids (8 &5) loved it also. Added imitation crab to create more protein, and spinach and tomatos to make it more of a salad. Delicious!

    Prepared this a day ahead as a side dish without the tofu. It was delicious. I cut the amount of green onions based on the reviews, and also used a combo of shiitake and crimini mushrooms. Will definitely make again.

    This was an extremely time-consuming recipe. Mind you, it's good , but for the time, energy, and number of pans used, not to mention bowls-I won't make it again. Too many other great recipes to try.
