    I would like to know the brand of the fish sauce you use. I've found not all Asian condiment brands are good. I don't know how to find good condiments. I've chosen horrible sauce brands. I need a good brand of fish sauce please. Thank you! (:

    Do you think the dressing would be okay without the honey added to it? I don't use any sweeteners.

    can you omit the fish sauce and put something else in place?

      yes, omit or there is a vegan version of fish sauce made with seaweed.

    Why not use a small onion, instead of 1/4 of a large one and avoid having to store the rest of it and Stinking up your fridge?

    • Yin & Yang Living
      Yin & Yang Living  3 months ago +1

      good suggestion, but I eat a lot of red onion in salads, so it does not stay in fridge for very long.

  • paola mura
    paola mura 4 months ago +1

    A bit too much raw onion! Otherwise...great for the diet!

    • Yin & Yang Living
      Yin & Yang Living  4 months ago

      Yes, I certainly understand that for some, it would be too much, so leave it out or place less onion.

    What is fish sauce???

    • Yin & Yang Living
      Yin & Yang Living  4 months ago

      It's a sauce made with fish flavoring but it doesn't taste fishy in recipe. If you are vegan, leave it out or use vegan sauce made with seaweed

    Im so glad i came across this salad. Its delicious. Due to 1 of the commentors i used sesame oil (they said toasted sesame seed oil but i didnt pay attention). Like another commentor said i tasted the dressing by itself and im so glad i read that comment b4 making it, had i not i would have thrown it away b4 i ever finished making the salad. By itself not so tasty but on the salad it was gr8. I had been watching this vid for months trying to convince myself to make it, so glad i did. Thx for the recipe. I ate the whole bowl for dinner ๐Ÿ˜”๐Ÿ˜†

    I don't have a "shredder", do you think using a spiralizer on the cucumbers would work as well?

    • Yin & Yang Living
      Yin & Yang Living  4 months ago

      I am not sure what that is but probably not because of the juices.

  • Inkdraft

    I just made this, in fact I'm eating it right now. I used a TBS of Xylitol instead of the honey and I only used 1//4 tsp of red pepper flakes. When I first tasted the dressing by itself I thought, "Eh, it's ok." but when I put it on the chilled salad it was really excellent. Very nice dish, I'll make it again. I think the more chilled the salad and the dressing are the better the flavors come out. Thanks.
