Asian Citrus Salad

Another salad recipe requested by my sister in law Mary.   Don’t remember where is came from but it’s yummy!

salad:

1 head Romaine lettuce

3 chicken breast halves, cooked and chopped (I’ve also used a can of Costco brand chicken in this salad with great results)

1 red onion, chopped (or half if it’s a huge one)

1/2 bunch radishes, sliced

1/4 cup slivered almonds

1 cup Chow Mein noodles

1 can Mandarin oranges, drained (reserve the juice)

dressing:

7 oz vegetable oil (in order to make this a little more calorie friendly, I

use the reserved mandarin orange juice in place of some of the oil, like half or so, still tastes great but makes it a little less fatty)

3 oz rice vinegar

2 oz soy sauce

1 clove fresh garlic, pressed

1/4 teaspoon ground ginger

2 teaspoons sugar

Combine all salad ingredients in large bowl.  Prepare dressing.  Pour dressing over salad just before serving and toss.
