4 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
4 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/2 cup salad oil
3 tablespoons sesame seeds, browned (see note)
1 head lettuce, cut up (or 1 bag)
1 cup cooked chicken breast, cut into bite size pieces
4 green onions, sliced
1/4 cup sliced almonds, browned (see note)
1 cup chow main noodles
1. Mix vinegar, sugar, salt and pepper and whisk in salad oil until combined. Add browned sesame seeds.
2. In a large bowl add lettuce, chicken, onions, almonds.
3. Pour dressing (you may not need all the dressing) over salad and sprinkle salad with chow mien noodles.
Note: To brown almonds, put on cookie sheet and brown in 400 degree oven for a few minutes. Watch carefully as they can burn fast! Do the same for the sesame seeds on a different cookie sheet as the sesame seeds will brown first. This step is important as browning will bring out their flavor.
