Yesterday I ate the vegetable salad and the fruit salad for lunch.

I ate the rice salad for dinner. Even with all my modifications to the original recipe, it was amazing! In the video I mentioned that I thought it would be a side for two to three people. But, eating it last night I realized how filling it is. With the two cups of cooked rice (that is called for in the recipe), I would say that it would easily provide four side dishes and maybe even six.

I just had the Asian salad for lunch. It was a delight for the eyes and the taste buds!

The fresh garlic was an absolute must. So, I think I may use fresh ginger instead of dried next time.

I would not substitute the parsley for the cilantro again. I used flat Italian parsley and it was too bitter and did not blend well with the other ingredients. Next time I will use fresh cilantro.

The pasta salad was super delicious! I'd probably add more green pepper next time. Also, I'd recommend mixing the dressing in the large bowl while the pasta is cooking. Then chop up the vegetables and add them to the bowl. Stir them around with the dressing. When the pasta is done, drain it and then toss it with the vegetables and the dressing.
