Copycat Wendy's Oriental Dressing

Total Time
Prep 10 mins

This is a copy-cat version of the dressing used in Wendy's Mandarin Chicken Salad that I found on the site, About:Huntsville, AL. I use Romaine lettuce, mandarin oranges, peanuts and chow mein noodles. Toss with the dressing and you have a great salad. If you would like to make it a main course add cooked chicken strips. If I recall correctly Wendy's uses sliced almonds, but I prefer the peanuts.

This is a very good recipe but lacks a little in the flavor department as far as being like Wendy's. Add a quarter cup of smooth peanut butter and it will give it the flaver that it is missing.

This dressing was splendid and I thought it tasted quite similar to Wendy's dressing! Thanks for the recipe.
