Amazing, one of the best stir-fries I've ever had.

This was fantastic for a quick and easy Saturday lunch. The dressing is beautiful and the fresh, crunchy veggies are a great change from the usual heavy stir-fries. I tend to have most of the ingredients knocking about the pantry so this would make a good stand-bye meal, possibly with different veggies too.
