When we first came across this recipe from the Daring Gourmet, we fell in love! This recipe is refreshingly light and so easy. We've made it even easier by taking Daring Gourmet's recipe and tweaking it just a tad. Instead of making our own salad mix, we used a bag of broccoli slaw and used store bought Hoisin sauce instead of making our own. If you are interested in her homemade salad mix and her hoisin sauce recipe, please check out her blog!
