    Looks delicious! I’m not a fan of raw cabbage…would it work okay if I sauteed it a little at first and then combined it with remaining ingredients?

    Absolutely delicious. Made as directed except I forgot the avocado. It’s on the counter needing another purpose now. This combination tasted a lot like the Vietnamese Chicken Salad wraps at Pei Wei without the rice wrap and noodles. Will definitely make again.

    Made for a group of ladies. Had to substitute PB & peanuts with Cashew butter/Cashews. Everyone loved it and had seconds, thirds! ๐Ÿ˜‰
