Chow Mein Chicken Salad

We celebrated one of my coworkers' birthday today with a birthday lunch! I got this from Priscilla and made just a few changes and additions. It was really great--all four of us loved it!

Chow Mein Chicken Salad

8 cups shredded lettuce
3/4 cup chow mein noodles
2/3 cup cubed cooked chicken breast
2 green onions, chopped
4 teaspoons sliced almonds, toasted
4 teaspoons sesame seeds, toasted
1 small can of mandarin oranges, drained and rinsed
1/2 cucumber, peeled and chopped

1/4 cup vegetable oil
4-1/2 teaspoons white wine vinegar
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/4 t soy sauce

Combine all the salad ingredients and chill. Combine the dressing ingredients, shake well, and chill. After chilling (at least 30 minutes), shake dressing well again, and combine. Easy enough!:)
