Oriental Chicken Salad and Dressing

Oh my goodness!  Yum! 
Can I have this at least once a week!?  Or everyday?
This was sooooo good and everyone devoured theres!  It was such a good summer meal, especially since it is soo easy to prepare!
A great easy salad that had great flavor too!
Oriental Chicken Salad and Dressing
  • Romaine lettuce, chopped
  • Mandarin Oranges
  • Cooked, seasoned and sliced chicken (used Montreal Steak Seasoning for Chicken to season mine)
  • Sliced Almonds
  • Chow Mein Noodles
  • 1/4 cup mayonaise
  • 4 tbsp rice wine vinegar
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tbsp sesame seed oil
  • 1 tsp dijon mustard
Get all your ingredients prepared and ready.  I opened 2 cans of oranges and just made enough chicken for my family with a little left over.  You can adjust this to as many or as little people as you need to feed.

Keep your ingredients separated so that you can have leftovers another day.  I put my sliced chicken in one bowl, then the oranges in another and so forth.  You then start with placing your lettuce in your bowl or on your plate.  Top with your oranges, chicken and then top with your almonds and chow mein noodles.  Now you are ready for your dressing.

Combine all your dressing ingredients and whisk until smooth and blended.  Pour over your individual salads and enjoy! 

Todd took this to work and I separated it into small containers with the lettuce in the biggest and then he put it together and it was a great leftover lunch!
