Easy Chinese Chicken Salad Dressing Recipe

3/4 cup vegetable or canola oil
4 1/2 tbl. rice vinegar
4 1/2 tbl. sugar
2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
Combine and mix well (shake).
Will stay good in the fridge for about 2 weeks.

So here’s the scoop on this dressing. This Chinese Chicken Salad is a staple at every single family gathering we have. My aunt always grabs a container  from a small restaurant by her house before heading over. This weekend the shop was closed and she had no other option but to sit down and figure out the recipe once and for all. And folks, she nailed it.

We always use fresh iceberg lettuce, lightly salt and peppered chicken (really easy if you buy one of those already cooked rotisserie chickens), diced green onion and yummy wontons.  Toss with the dressing and then enjoy one of the best salads ever.

    I totally LOVE Chinese Chicken salad. So, I decided to learn how to make it
    myself. I tweaked this recipe jus a lil by adding mandarins, chopped green onions, and finely chopped cabage. But I must say: The dressing was spot on!! Very simple and tasty. Loved it!

    Can’t wait to try this dressing – and I make mine the way Leslie does, with cabbage and mandarin oranges and add wonton crisps to it – YUM!

    This dish also makes a wonderful addition to any potluck as it is served at room temperature and
    is not harmed by waiting to be enjoyed. As you can see, there
    is an ongoing theme here of protein (Omega 3 eggs,
    peanut butter, low fat cheese) and a complex whole
    wheat or multigrain carbohydrate (toast, bagel, bran flakes).
    It is believed that our wild ancestors lived much healthier, more energetic lives than man does today,
    which proves its importance.

    This is a recipe I used years ago, and had lost it. I stumbled upon this one, and decided that it was as close to the one I had been using, so I made it yesterday. It was fabulous!! I did make some slight changes to it: To the salad, I added a head of bok choy, and a handful of slivered almonds. To the dressing, I used ‘stevia in the raw’ instead of sugar, and split the vinegars between apple cider vinegar and rice wine vinegar. I also fried up some wonton skins and crunched them up as opposed to the store bought strips.
    The salad was gone in 30 minutes! It was a huge hit.
