After a weekend-long Halloween candy binge, a good salad sounded so good. I always love Asian salads, one of my favorite is Applebee’s Oriental Chicken Salad. I found a few copy-cat recipes online, but none of the dressings really did it for me. So, I put together my own – and it hit the spot!
Oriental Chicken Salad
3 cups chopped romaine
2 cups coleslaw mix (cabbage, red cabbage, carrots)
1/3 cup mushrooms, chopped
1 bell pepper, chopped
1/4 cup green onion, chopped
1/2 cup chow mein noodles
1/4 cup sliced almonds
2 grilled chicken breasts, sliced
1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
1/2 cup mayonnaise
3 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1/8 teaspoon sesame oil
1/4 teaspoon fresh grated ginger
1. Mix all of the salad ingredients together in a large bowl.
2. Blend together all of the dressing ingredients together in a small bowl.
3. Toss salad with dressing, and enjoy!!
Also great served as a wrap!
