    Summertime is salad time around my house. Always on the look out for a great salad and this Asian salad looks looks fresh and delicious. I would have to leave the peanuts out unfortunately because of some allergies in family members.

    As I am trying on some good diet to keep me refreshed, as I am not able to go out for some jog and walk frequently, will surely try this. It looks tempting and is healthy, as you mentioned. Also it reminds me subway salad, I am crazy for those.
