Something else. I thought that the dressing for this salad was pretty boring. I added approximately 4T of the rice vinegar, more lemon juice and around a tsp. of soy sauce. That helped a lot! I also sprinkled toasted flaked almonds on top when it was served. I also used sweet red peppers instead of the green. Along with the carrots, it was a beautiful salad. - 24 Jul 2008


Altered ingredient amounts. Excellent recipe. The mangetout really make this slaw stand out. I did use more lemon juice and vingar for a bit of extra flavour. - 24 Jul 2008


Altered ingredient amounts. I increased the amount of rice wine vinegar to 3 T while keeping the lemon juice and olive oil the same. I will probably add toasted almonds to make it a meal! - 24 Jul 2008
