So quick & easy. Very tasty, nice balance of sweet, sour & warmth/heat (from ginger). Served this with seasoned grilled salmon - complemented each other nicely. Another to save!

Lovely and tangy, an excellent refreshing salad. I just had it with roast chicken and another couple of salads but I think it would go well with thai inspired salmon too. Yum.
