Any salad I can dress with galeos miso dressing usually is a winner for me. Couple that with a base of napa cabbage and I am typically licking the bowl. I styled this salad after a chinese chicken salad at a local restaurant. Brad really likes the salad here. I kinda like the salad and that is after I ask for no dressing, extra chicken and combining two half portions of separate salads. Not sure that classifies as liking something. This to me is much better. Occasionally I toss on mandarin oranges when in season and it makes it taste even better.
