1/1 Photo of Orient Express Chicken Salad
In response to a thread asking for a close clone to the marinade of the McDonald's Asian salad, I ran across this recipe in one of my cooking magazines. I have not tired this yet so I don't know how close it is. The ingredients seem similar and the photo to accompany it looked similar. When I make this and photograph it, I will post that as well unless one of our great chefs get to it before me. :) Prep time includes marinading.
