Chow Mein Chicken Salad.

Good Tuesday morning everyone! I can't believe this is the last week in February. I also can't believe it is going to be March. I am so glad to be leaving the frigid winter behind. Summer sounds so good these days....I can't wait to be swimming in a pool soon. More like a couple months. How I love summer!

I know I have been posting lots of chicken recipes lately and this recipe here so far, tops the others. This was literally gone in 30 minutes. I barely got any, but the bit I got was delicious. Everyone kept saying make this again, please! Without a doubt I will. I love the chow mein noodles in this salad along with the chicken. The dressing is pure yumminess.

Chow Mein Chicken Salad
4 cups shredded lettuce
1 cup chow mein noodles
2/3 cup cubed cooked chicken breast
2 green onions, chopped
4 teaspoons sliced almonds, toasted
4 teaspoons sesame seeds, toasted
1/4 cup vegetable oil
4-1/2 teaspoons white wine vinegar
1 tablespoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/8 teaspoon salt
Directions: In a large salad bowl, combine the lettuce, chow mein noodles, chicken, onions, almonds and sesame seeds. In a jar with a tight-fitting lid, combine the vinaigrette ingredients; shake well. Drizzle over salad and toss to coat. Serve immediately. Yield: 4 servings.

Most guys love dogs. Really love them. But, my brother Steven is different. He has never been a huge dog lover. He'd pet them and be friendly with them but he wasn't thrilled about dogs. He'd prefer to be doing outdoor activites. Until Lewis came along. He loves Lewis, we all do....but Steven loves him the most. Lew is always given lots of attention by him. I don't give Lew that much attention because I am usually aggrivated with him (seriously, he is so much work!). Still, we all adore this dog, like none other that we've had....but Steven and Lewis have a special bonding. And even though Lew is mine but likes Steven more, I don't mind. I love seeing how much my brother adores my dog.

Enjoy your Tuesday and I'll see you with an amazing giveaway next!

Lewis is adorable!!!!! I LOVE dogs! I have a Boston Terrier pup that is so demanding he just drains me!!! He's soooooo cute though!!!!!LOLOL

Olivia said...

That's all right. I'd rather wait for a good tasting recipe. ;-D No sense in making something that's pretty but doesn't taste good!

Lewis is too cute! We have a choc. lab named Chloe. She was the runt so she's only about the size of a medium dog. And she's really weird {eats mulch,scoots on her belly, crosses her eyes}. We say she's autistic...

Sounds so good--like something even my husband will eat! Do you think it'd be good with mandarin oranges?
And about the competition--you should definitely get involved in ProStart and you can be in one too! Do you have it at your school?
