a very unusual and a unique salad.. well and these steamed dumplings remind me of the sausages that are usually added to non-vegetarian salads... but however here in this recipe... its totally vegetarian... giving you the same look and feel and still keeping your dietary preference intact... loved this warm, mildly flavored salad..
