Chinese Chicken Salad

I love this Chinese Chicken Salad!  It's so light and yummy and always seems to hit the spot. The great thing about this salad is that you can pretty much use any kind of chicken you choose.  Whether it be homemade chicken strips as posted here, a family order of Popcorn Chicken from KFC, a family order of Chicken Nuggets/strips from Chic-fil-A, meat from a rotisserie chicken, or chicken on the grill--it will work great in this salad.

You will need:

I get this dressing at Safeway (Vons) but if you can't find it at the grocery store, you can order it here.

Finely slice half a head of iceberg lettuce.

Combine in a large salad bowl with 4oz shredded red/purple cabbage, 1/2 cup sliced carrots and 3 sliced green onions.

Sprinkle drained Mandarin on salad (I do half of the big container, but you can add a much or little as you like).

Layer on Chow Mein Noodles, cashews and bite size chicken.

Toss with desired amount of Toasted Sesame dressing.
