    I'll eat most anything, but peanut butter and soysauce are a terrible comination. I didn't add the salt and it was still too salty.  -  27 Sep 2017


    So in my search for satisfying "diet" food, I wanted new salads to eat. This is soooo flavorfull and yummy, I actually crave it every week. I would reccomend OMITTING the salt. It is plenty salty enough using the soy sauce. I would also recommend slicing (very thin) your cabbage rather then buying the pre bagged stuff. It adds more flavor and juiciness. I also add my dressing right to my bowl of salad right before I eat it.I am going to start using Braggs liquid amino acids. It has 1/3 of the sodium then soy sauce and is actually good for you and tasts the same. Look for it in the health food section by the cider vinager.PLEASE, PLEASE make this. You wont be sorry! I make it at least 2 times a week, and I am not sick of it yet! Also, add the cilantro righ to the dressing, otherwise it stick to the sides of the bowl instead of being"IN" the salad. Enjoy friends. I know you will love it.  -  13 Nov 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Really good and satisfying. I tried to make this recipe according to the directions, then realized I didn't buy the red peppers so subbed carrots, which were good, but I think the recipe as written would be even better. Still, it was a 5 star recipe. Use natural peanut butter if you can-it really is easier to work with and tastes more like peanuts.  -  19 Apr 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
