Chinese Chicken Salad

We love salads in my house! This one is substantial enough to serve as a main course. The dry Ramen noodles crumbled on top is my favorite part!

Sesame Dressing:
1/4 c. canola oil
2 Tbl soy sauce
2 Tbl dark sesame oil
1/4 c. honey
2 Tbl red wine vinegar
1 tsp dijon mustard
Ramen Noodles pkg of seasoning (optional)

1 large head of red leaf lettuce, trimmed & torn
1-2 chicken breasts, cooked and chopped into bite sized pieces
1 carrot, shredded
3 green onions, sliced
1/4 c. sesame seeds, toasted
1/4 c. sliced almonds, toasted
1 package dry Ramen noodles, crushed into small, edible pieces

Put all ingredients for the dressing in Tupperware container with a tight fitting lid. Shake, shake, shake it until the dressing is well mixed. You will NOT, I repeat, NOT use all of this dressing on the salad. Use what you need and then save the rest (it's pretty yummy on noodles!).

Add the lettuce, green onions, chopped chicken, toasted sesame seeds & almonds to a large salad bowl. Toss with dressing. Plate the salad. Sprinkle each salad with dry Ramen noodles. Enjoy!
