Great salad! Just a little too spicy for me - I will use half the dry mustard next time. I also added a can of chopped water chestnuts. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

Toast the almonds first! Until they are lightly browned and then toss with the warm chicken pieces. Chicken takes on flavor of almonds fabulous! Recipe: too many ingredients and dressing was awful to our taste. Chicken was lost. We'll stay with the chicken almonds celery and mayo. Gigi Read More

I love Chinese Chicken Salad! I altered this recipe a bit and served it to a group of 30 people and it turned out fantastic. I added the following: 1 green pepper sliced; sliced mushrooms; two 11 ounce cans mandarin orange segments (juice drained); 1 small can rice noodles. I also thought the dressing was way too spicey (hot) so I changed it too which made the salad taste much better. Dressing: 2 Tbsp white sugar 2 Tbsp white vinegar 3/4 Tbsp sesame oil 3/4 tsp ground dry mustard 3 Tbsp Teriyaki Sauce (I used Angostura brand which has less sodium than other brands). Read More

I found this to be very good only I left off the dressing that was given and instead added a couple of tablespoons of mayonnaise and served on bread like sandwiches. Delicious! Read More

This was good tossed with Napa (Chinese) cabbage. I also used it as a filling for the popular new "lettuce wraps." It was very good. Read More

This is the dressing recipe I've been searching forever for! I also cut the mustard (heh heh) in half but will add a touch more next time just to see how that goes. I served mine over ramen noodles and added thinly sliced nappa/chinese cabbage to it. I doubled the dressing recipe drizzled it over the noodles then the salad..layered them in single serving bowls then kept the rest of the dressing on the side. This is a really terrific salad on a hot day! Read More

The dressing really gives this salad an oriental flavor however the cilantro was slightly overpowering. I also blanched the snap peas for a minute before adding to the mixture and they were still very crispy. This is a nice cool summer dish. Read More

This was very yummy. I substituted blanched asparagas for the snow peas because that's what I had on hand. I will make it again! Read More

Quite tasty. It's a nice summer dish. We enjoyed it although I would add less sugar next time. It was a little too sweet for me. Read More

This salad mixture was great as a main meal. The toasted almonds were well liked and I used it over napa cabbage. Very filling and flavorful. I did double the dressing due to the extra cabbage alittle extra is better than not enough. Do cut the dry mustard by half if it's not your favorite flavor. I also omitted the cilantro leaves. No Teriyaki Sauce on hand use one submitted by Kevin it was excellent! Read More
