Chinese Chicken Salad

A family friend sent me this recipe years ago after my Mom raved about it.  Since we're still enjoying salads during our heat wave in Texas, I thought I'd share it with you.  It's so full of crunchy goodness!!
I'm giving ingredients for a two person salad:

1 head of Romaine lettuce
2 chicken breasts, cooked
1-2 green onions
2 T. Sesame seed
1 t. poppy seeds
1/2 cup slivered almonds
Rice noodles (found near the chow mein noodles)

Cut up the lettuce, chicken & onions & place in a bowl.

Toast the almonds, Sesame & poppy seeds.


(You will have some left over for another salad.)

1/2 c. vegetable oil
1/2 c. sugar (I used 1/4 c. of sugar substitute)
1 t. salt
1/2 t. pepper

Mix all in a blender.

Assemble the salad

Pour enough dressing over salad & mix.  Sprinkle the almonds, Sesame & poppy seeds & Rice noodles on top.  I also added some grape tomatoes to my salad.  I think sliced strawberries would be delicious, too.

Now, enjoy a bite of crunchy goodness!!

I'm sharing this with Full Plate Thursday at Miz Helen's & Foodie Friday at Designs by Gollum.
