      Made for photo tag! Delish. I cheated and used bagged lettuce, but it was the Veggie kind, so it was filled with cabbage, carrots and snow peas ( a lovely base for this salad). I loved the sesame oil in the dressing; will certainly make again.

      Enjoyed this salad especially with its combo of the toasted sesame seeds & mandarin oranges! I often have extra cooked chicken breasts on hand, so this recipe is definitely a keeper! Thanks for posting! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Every Day Is a Holiday cooking game]
