Chow Mein Chicken Salad

I shake up the dressing for this popular asian salad the day before and refrigerate it until I'm ready to toss the mixture. Flaked tuna or crab meat are good alternatives for the chicken in this recipe.

    I love how easy this salad is. It was very tasty and we will be making this again for easy lunches. I may substitute seasoned rice vinegar for the white wine vinegar next time, but still very tasty.
