I usually prepare this easy and healthy salad for dinner. I think soya balls are versatile ingredient that goes well with anything. For vegetarians, it is a great substitution for meat. I also use soya balls in dumplings. If you want to make vegetarian dumplings, soya balls can certainly enhance the texture and flavour of your dumpling fillings.

    I'll have to look for these today when I go shopping. The recipe looks fantastic and versitile too. I could see substituting a wide variety of meat and veggies based on what I have on hand.

    I used to eat those soya balls (we call them soy chucks or by the brand-name Nutella sometimes) a couple times a week. I'd forgotten about them.
    The dish does look very good, nice and fresh and light. Yum!

    Thanks for the comments. If you are wondering where to find the Soya Balls, I bought them from an Indian grocery. Like Indie.Tea mentioned above, I think there was that brand and also some other brands.
