Used a couple of suggestions from other reviewers: used green onions instead of regular and added some sesame oil. The oil is what I believe saved the dish. Would not recommend eating this slaw immediately after making; it needs the full hour (and then some) to absorb all the flavors in the dressing. I do like the fact that it is a very healthy salad.

So easy, I put raw chicken breasts in my Deep Covered Baker with some Asian Seasoning for 15 minutes while I chopped the veggies and had a healthy summer meal without using a hot grill or stovetop.

Yummy light salad for a hot summer day! didn't miss the oil at all in the dressing. Very tasty and healthy. Will make again possibly with grilled shrimp....

I added 1 tablespoon of sesame oil,used splenda in place of sugar,added a few green onions, bean sprouts and used some julienned teriyaki pork tenderloin.You could use chicken ,shrimp ,left over lobster is great tasting in this application.I also use napa cabbage finely shreaded.I prepare it in the morning so it marinates the cabbage,then serve it later in the day.I also have heated the vinegar and sugar and poured that over the salad and made a wilted cabage salad.

I love this recipe. It is easy, healthy, and one of the foods that I just crave. I add a couple of teaspoons of sesame oil to the dressing, cut the sugar to 1 T., and usually throw in a couple of cups of bean sprouts, also. It tastes good the moment I make it, and just as delicious the next day. It is filling, but light. Just love it!

This recipe is simple and has been a crowd pleaser for numerous family gatherings and workplace carry-ins. I always make it without the chicken. I can't count the number of times I've been asked for the recipe and enjoyed it when prepared by others. A definite will continue to make.

Blech. Exactly the kind of distasteful dish that makes diets hard to stick to. Made it just as written and it's really missing something. I think I have to throw it away because no one wants to eat it again.

I made the dressing to put on a bag of broccoli slaw we had with Spiced Pulled Pork sandwiches. I added celery seeds because I like them in coleslaw. I don't like mayonnaise so I'm always looking for alternative dressing recipes. I didn't think this one was very good, but maybe it's better with all the ingredients included.
