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!!
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!!
