Notes about this recipe

    The dressing worked great cutting down the fish sauce in half and skipping the salt.

    I used honey and agree with mytai's comment - need to watch the salt in this one. I reduced the fish sauce slightly in the dressing. We loved this salad and mixed through thinly sliced steak to make it a complete meal. Used more bok choy, skipped the cabbage, and substituted baby spinach for watercress. Mixed dressing in just before serving. We loved this dish, great dish for a hot night.

    This was very tasty - but the dressing is a bit salty, so go easy at first. (I used xylitol instead of honey - honey might cut the salt better). Goes incredibly well with the chicken in the Korean tacos recipe. Both held up really well as leftovers, and I thought tasted even better the next day.
