Oriental Chicken Salad

I can't recommend this salad enough.  It used to be the only reason I wanted to go to Applebee's.  No more!  I can make it at home for a fraction of the cost and it tastes the EXACT same!  Big thanks to Mandy over at Mandy's Recipe Box for this delicious copycat recipe!
 The dressing is what really makes this salad.  To make it you will need:
1/4 cup mayonnaise 
3 Tablespoons honey
1 1/2 Tablespoons white rice vinegar
1 teaspoon grey poupon mustard
1/8 teaspoon sesame oil

I would go ahead and double the above recipe because you are going to love it so much!  I would also suggest that you mix this in a little bowl with a whisk then store in a salad dressing holder.  Refrigerate while would mix up the salad ingredients.

For the actual salad you will need:
1 bag of romaine lettuce salad mix
1 bag of coleslaw cabbage
Big handful of chow mein noodles
2 Tablespoons sliced almonds
2 crispy chicken strips (I like the tyson frozen brand)

Bake crispy chicken strips in the oven according to the directions on the bag.  While that is cooking combine romaine lettuce and coleslaw cabbage in a large bowl.  Then sprinkle with chow mein noodles.

When the chicken strips have 2 minutes left, add the almonds to the baking pan and toast for the last 2 minutes.  When chicken is done, take out strips and cut into bite size pieces.  Put chicken and almonds on the salad.  When you are ready to eat add dressing and enjoy!
