Comments on this Recipe

This was one of the most refreshing, delicious combinations I've had in a long time.

Sounds good. I "liked" this site on FB and I get recipes in my feed.



I made this twice already because it is sooo good. I don't like cilantro and chile, so I left it out, but the recipe, as written, is perfect. I added some fried tofu to it to make it a more complete meal for me. The mango and sesame oil are a real kick!

This is really a great salad, exactly as described here, my family loved it!

This recipe is not listed as gluten-free (for a reason). I thought it was a typo -- with the tamari, it could totally be gluten-free. Not so! The smoked almonds I got had wheat in them! Beware! Otherwise this is a totally delicious and colorful recipe.

Looks really yummy

I LOVE this slaw....I've made it countless times. It pairs very well with Asian dishes and is super healthy. I tore this recipe out of my Veg Times magazine and it's been added to my collection of "keep and do again" recipes. You gotta try this!
