  • Reviews

  • “I love this stuff!My Mom has been making it for years! Less the chow mein noodles. I think it was in the Company’s Coming series cookbook for salads. I love soya sauce to I tend to add more to the dressing.”

  • “This was really good, and different. My DH and his friend said “Not Bad” which is why I am giving it 4 stars instead of 5. I personally thought it was great!”

  • “Similar to what I make, except without the chow mein noodles, and using only 2 cups of cooked rice.”
