I make this all the time for my family when I have leftover roast chicken. I use the following substitutions: Peanut oil instead of vegetable oil, leftover roast chicken instead of canned chicken and toasted sesame seeds instead of almonds with a little sesame oil sprinkled on to taste. Everyone always raves about it.


First off, using pre-shredded cabbage and a bag of salad mix saved me a lot of time! I made the recipe following the directions but omitted the cilantro because I didn't have any on hand. When I tasted it, it was a very savory taste as opposed to a sweet and sour taste you would expect. I sprinkled sugar over it and kept mixing it in until it tasted the way I liked it. It worked very well. Some reviewers have commented that it is too oily. I used a large bag of cabbage and a small bag of salad mix. It was not oily at all this way. IF you are afraid it might be too oily for you, add a little dressing at a time to suit your taste. Overall, a tasty and easy salad! P.S. So I'm eating this salad and thinking to myself, "Gee, I wonder if adding mandarine oranges would be good?". So I frantically look through the cupboard for oranges and to my dismay there are none. However, there is a can of pineapple. So I added a whole can plus some juice, and wow! This is now a FIVE STAR SALAD!!!


Excellent recipe. I tried it for the first time at my first office potluck for Valentine's Day and everyone who tried it absolutely loved it. I used red cabbage for more color and I added a can of drained water chestnuts because I had it in the cupboard.
