Reviews for Chinese Chicken Salad with Peanut Sesame Dressing
"Very tasty salad. It makes a great main dish on a hot day. I added some grated carrot and also some chopped cilantro. Definitely will make it again."
"i love the dressing, chow mein noodles just not right for us"
"I have made this salad 8 or 9 times now. It has become my wifes favorite. It is so good and easy and the dressing smells so good. We make it without the chicken as a side to many dinners too. Just a great recipe."
