Cook's Note:

If you don't keep cooked chicken around, just cook the chicken while you are preparing the rest of the salad and the prep time should be the same.

Substitute cooked, seasoned tofu for the chicken and you have a great vegetarian dish.

Green onion can be substituted for the leeks, if desired.

It would have been nice if the recipe author would have included a recipe for Asian dressing because the dressing really could make or break this salad. I had some Ken s Steak House Lite Asian Sesame with Ginger & Soy Dressing in the fridge which worked well. IMO a dressing is not an option because otherwise this salad would be very dry. I ran a little short on the spinach so I added other salad greens I had on hand. At the dinner table my husband asked me what we were eating I told him the name of the recipe and he suggested we add some chow mein noodles to the salad. I had them in the cabinet so we did (after the photo was taken) and that gave this a nice little crunch. Enjoyed this as a main course dinner salad which with a cup of soup. Read More
