This salad is perfectly suited for a dinner party! The ginger sesame dressing can be used as a marinade for chicken or beef, and even as a dipping sauce for sushi and sashimi. Feel free to substitute cashews if there is a peanut allergy in the group.

Asian asparagus saladGarlic is not listed in the ingredient list, but called for in the directions with no mention of quantity. Ok, no big deal. I’ll just throw a few in. Then this recipe calls for the 64oz container, but there isn’t enough ingredients that go in to even get it to blend!

Good salad, but a problem with the dressingThe combination of beans and cilantro was great. I think the cooking directions were right, but you need to watch the timing very closely to avoid overcooking. I overdid it a bit and it would have been better if they were just lightly cooked. I was afraid that a "bunch" of cilantro would be too much (judging from the size of a bunch from the grocery), so I only put in 1/3 of a bunch; I cut off the stems and chopped the rest and that was very good, but in afterthought maybe 2/3 of the bunch would be good too. It would be helpful if the author characterized a "bunch" in cups of chopped leaves. The dressing was very good, but as another review said, with only a few tablespoons of liquids, it didn't even come up to the level of the blades in my Vitamix. You have to at least triple the amounts to reach the blades. I didn't have peanuts (which probably went well with the sesame dressing), so I chopped up some dry roasted almonds, and that was great.
