Family favorite recipe straight from Momma's kitchen. Even the KIDS beg for it!!! This is one salad they will eat over and over again (and just about the ONLY salad I will eat). This makes a lot of food, and sometimes I will double the recipe and we will eat it all week long! Perfect for lunch, too.
3-4 chicken breasts, cooked and slivered. We grill ours with clean teriyaki sauce/marinade.
1 1/2 heads romaine lettuce
4 green onions, sliced thin
1 small can Chinese rice noodles
1/8 cup poppy seeds
3/4 cup slivered almonds
Mandarin oranges, if desired
1/4 c honey
2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/4 c wine vinegar
1/2 c extra virgin olive oil
Cook and slice chicken into bite-sized pieces. Mix all the dry ingredients in a large bowl. Place dressing ingredients in a mason jar. Shake well and pour over salad when ready to serve!
Use organic as much as possible.
PRO TIP: Keep the dressing separate until you are about to eat. Then, mix up the amount of salad you will eat at that time with some of the dressing. Store salad and dressing separately and mix as you need for leftovers.
