This has a wonderful spicy flavor. It's great for potlucks because you can make it ahead of time and it doesn't need reheating.

Yum, we enjoyed this salad very much! I used Brown rice, seasoned rice wine vinegar and added 1/4 C chopped peanuts for extra crunch. Also used Siracha hot sauce (two squirts) instead of Cayenne pepper. Next time I will add some carrot or sliced red pepper to add some additional color.
I loved this! The dressing is delicious in the salad and on rice all by itself. I added cilantro and some lime juice. Thanks for the great posting.
