“This salad is one of the suggested side dishes that goes with Roast Salmon with Spiced Coconut Crumbs Roast (Roast Salmon With Spiced Coconut Crumbs). However, you may want to serve it as a side or starter in combination with other Asian style dishes. I have to admit that I've never followed this recipe exactly, but I often use it as a base.”
