    justcallmetoni's Note:

    This Asian inspired salad makes for a lovely luncheon or supper. The contents of the salad can easily be adjusted to whatever you like or have on hand. If you prefer a vegetarian meal, omit the chicken or use tofu instead. Won't be chicken salad but will still be delicious.

      This is a beautiful salad! I made a single serving just for me, but prepared the dressing exactly as instructed figuring I would simply keep the extra refrigerated for future use. I fear the plain, nonfat yogurt I used (store brand) was not the best choice....as after blending the dressing ingredients for several seconds, I ended up with a very thin liquid.... Still tasted yummy but it simply glazed the salad and most ended up in the bottom of the salad plate. So there was only a touch of flavor added to what ended up being a rather 'dry' salad. Based on Sharon's photo, I was expecting a thicker dressing that would hold on to the salad a little better. Regardless, I enjoyed the flavor of the ginger (something I've just recently acquired a taste for) with the orange and loved the addition of mandarin oranges and water chestnuts in the salad. I'll try to find a creamier yogurt for next time around and perhaps simply 'mix well' as opposed to putting in the blender, as I think I would have enjoyed a little more 'body' in the dressing. Thank you for a wonderful post that made for a delightful, healthy lunch!

      This was delicious! I ended up using salmon instead of chicken. I loved the ginger and the citrus taste in this salad. Thank you Toni!
