Beautiful presentation. Made to recipe using rotisserie chicken for a no-cook supper. So gorgeous. This would be great served as a side salad for 8-10 (sans chicken) with CL's Vietnamese-spiced pork -or- grilled shrimp, mango, avocado -or- any sate or grilled protein.

I have made this recipe three times, and I love it! My husband takes it to work and people smell the aromas of the basil, lime juice, and veggies and can't resist asking to try some. This is healthy and tasty and one of my favorite recipes!

i thought that this recipe was way too heavy on the herbs, which over-powered the flavors in the rest of the dish.

This is a recipe my family enjoys regularly. The flavor is fabulous.

This is one of our favorite summer dishes.. extremely fresh and light tasting. This is one of the few salads that you can keep for leftovers and has even more flavor, without being soggy. I used dried mint as I did not have any fresh mint and still delicious !

Very fresh, light, and colorful. Used a rotisserie chicken as above and it came together nicely. Besides the chopping it is very low-effort.

This recipe is one that I found I should not fool with. Change a couple of ingredients, change the whole symphony of flavors. Excellent just the way it is.

Really nice. Got great reviews followed exactly as directed. Also, the volume decreases upon sitting after a few minutes of dressing. A good thing because otherwise a huge plate is needed. Next time to play, would adjust seasonings to add more sweetness to dressing. Along with shrimp subbing for chicken maybe even beef, it's a versatile recipe. Adding ginger either as minced to dressing or sliced to salad. Maybe use slices of onions incorporated in the salad. Also try shrimp paste added to dressing for a pop. Great as is, but really excited to use as a base to replicate my favorite Thai lettuce wraps.

My wife and I love this recipe and have made three or four times. I definitely recommend you buy pre-shredded carrots and cabbage even if it doesn't seem like that much effort to cut your own. It can be quite time consuming given all the chopping in the recipe. It's so fresh tasting and worth the effort. I fudged the herb ratio a bit the most recent time since I didn't have enough mint, and it still turned out great.

OHH EMM GEE!! This salad is so good and so healthy. It is perfect as written. Fresh flavors meld together and, as others mentioned, to find a salad that is as good (if not better) as a leftover is a true gem. Thanks CL.

Love the mix of flavors. I added finely chopped serrano chiles to my serving as I like spicy things. Either way, this is yummy.
