    Delicious. My husband and I love to make this as a fresh summer dinner. We mix through some coriander as well for added flavour.

    Loved this- perfect for dimer on a 40 degree day! I also had to chop the carrots longer and added crunchy noodles. My chicken wasn't cooked through so I cooked for an extra 5 mins. Delicious!

    Beautiful, fresh, tasty flavours. It does make a huge salad! Looking forward to more tomorrow. Like other comments I am going to leave dressing, sprouts and peanuts aside so they can be added when needed. Thank you for a great summer meal. tmrc_emoticons.8)

    The flavour of this recipe is taking my cooking skills to another level. Thank you so much for a great recipe!

    I had to chop the carrots for a bit longer and agree with a previous comment that it is better to keep the dressing , nuts and sprouts until ready to eat, to save the salad going soggy.
