Oriental Chicken Salad and Dressing

Spring and Summer are the perfect time for salads. Salads are so refreshing and can be dressed up so many different ways that you could probably have a different salad every day this summer and have it be completely different form the day before.

My family loves this Oriental Chicken Salad.  The dressing adds an amazing flavor and the salad “accessories” add a nice crunch, refresh, and flavor as well.

Oriental Chicken Salad and Dressing
Recipe type: Salad
Cuisine: Chinese

    This salad looks wonderful! I feel stupid for asking this but is there a recipe to go with it? I'm especially curious as to what is in the dressing! Thanks!

      sorry about that! Wordpress sometimes doesn't add the recipe card plug in even if I schedule it too. It is fixed now :)

    I made this last night and it is restaurant quality - like Cheesecake Factory. My meat and potatoes hubby loved it and took the leftovers to work. I will never buy oriental salad dressing again. This was just too perfect.
