Applebee's Oriental Chicken Salad

Another Todd Wilbur recipe we use all the time! It is one of Jack's favorite lunches now and it is so speedy because I always keep fresh torn lettuce in the fridge. Even my kids like this one.

Oriental Dressing
3 Tablespoons honey
1 1/2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 teaspoon Grey Poupon Dijon Mustard
1/8 teaspoon sesame oil

Blend together all ingredients for dressing in a small bowl with an electric mixer. Chill

Salad (Jack and I usually have a combination of a dark leaf lettuce and iceberg in the fridge, but it even works well with bagged salad)
3 cups chopped romaine lettuce
1 cup red cabbage
1 cup napa cabbage
1/2 carrot julienned or shredded
1 green onion, chopped
1 Tablespoon sliced almonds (We like to roast ours)
1/3 cup chow mein noodles

Todd has a recipe for the breaded chicken to, but we don't use it. We cheat buy using grilled chicken breast strips or chicken nuggets to make it even quicker.
