This salad has everything - colour, texture, flavour and it tastes great! It's very popular, even with the kids. And the salad dressing has all the flavour of wasabi without the sting. The fish is simple and tasty and quick. I often serve this with a side of white rice. I entered this recipe in a national cooking contest for Australian Good Taste and was the finalist for my state. The magazine took the lovely photo...
