Rated 4 out of 5 by from Asian Sesame Ginger Chicken Salad While good, I would have enjoyed more iif it included snow peas! I could also do without the large slices of Chicken, (maybe sliced thinner? or No Chicken at all?)

Rated 3 out of 5 by from nice twist! I love subbing Truvia in all the old recipes that use either sugar or artificial sweetener. The flavors are always improved by the Truvia! This recipe was good. I was impressed by the simplicity.
