The dressing makes this salad a real treat. Don't forget the chow mein noodles for that crispy taste. I grilled the chicken, cooled in fridg, cut in strips for less calories. The two of us ate the WHOLE salad in one sitting.

We made this tonight and I suggest doubling the dressing - it is great and tastes great.
