This recipe was given to me by a very close friend and I fell in love. It's a great side to everything from pulled pork to Thai style bbq. Note: I sometimes use a bit less sugar in the dressing, and a bit more vinegar; it's flexible and forgiving. I don't usually put all of the dressing on the salad. Give it a taste first. I also usually let it sit for an hour or more at room temp to meld the flavors. If you are making the day before, prep the dressing and vegetables separately and combine an hour or two before serving.(The chow mein noodles are optional!)
