Ooof.!.....that dressing is soo wrong...4 tblsp sesame oil and all that lime juice? I was doubtful, but decided to go for it because I trust your judgement..it was an oil-slick...tasted it before adding to salad, added more lime juice and sugar, more fish sauce....and it was still tasting of sesame oil, so only added a bit and threw the rest away, what a waste and 4 limes weren't cheap either! However, the salad was lovely and refreshing, which i will make again, but with my own oriental dressing :(

Made this twice - the flavours are so amazing in this salad - definitely a new favourite.

Can this salad be made the day before it is to be eaten ?
