Unbelievable that this delicious recipe requires so little effort and prep time. It is a sophisticated dish that I cannot wait to bring to Christmas potlucks- likely with the inclusion of toasted sesame seeds!

This wasn't very good.  Bland and basic.  It needs more flavor and more complexity of flavor.  Rating:  2 out of 5.

This is one of my favorite quick recipes. Light peanut sauce but perfect. I followed a suggestion from the previous comment and added a sprinkle of sesame seeds... WOW, I'll do this every time from now on!

Mediocre...Not sure if I did something wrong but I'm positive I followed the recipe exactly.  I found it to be lacking in flavour,

Really good! I used lemon instead of limes.

A nice change to the standard cabbage slaw tastes.

I added a teaspoon of Dr Fuhrman Blood Orange vinegar and it really enhances the dressing!
