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
Ingredients:

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


VINAIGRETTE:
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


Directions:
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!:)
