As a resident of a primarily Asian community, the title of this recipe rather off-putting to me and the folks with whom I tried the recipe. There is nothing Asian about it, as written. Also, the (non-Asian) peanuts are a problem for many people. To make the salad safer, more interesting and tasty (and a bit Asian), we substituted cashew nuts for peanuts and added a bit of ground ginger to the salad dressing. With those variations, the salad was popular. It is certainly simple to make and offers a nice balance of fruit, veggies and protein. P.S. I hope someone will correct the typos in the recipe.
