Oriental Chicken Salad

This Oriental Chicken Salad is a great main dish during the summer – or if you need some extra green during the dreary days of winter!

The homemade dressing is very simple, but be sure to give it time to chill in the fridge. The original MSG-heavy (but so tasty!) recipe came from a family friend many years ago. This is my version without the MSG.

Even my salad-hating older son will eat two bowls of this for dinner, so that tells me it’s pretty good stuff.
