    SharonChen's Note:

    This is a simple, quick, and healthy lunch recipe, especially during summer time. For vegetarians, switch the chicken strips with lettuce, extra firm tofu or finely chopped green onion, etc. Pour some peanut butter sauce on your choice. It can't go wrong!

      Double Yum!! I loved the light clean flavors of this Shanghai noodle salad. This recipe makes a big serving as DH and I actually shared a plate and were both satisfied without being stuffed. I did forget to sprinkle sesame seeds on top. Would recommend putting (divided) after the sesame oil in the list of ingredients as the directions state add sesame oil so I used both teaspoons and when I got down to step 4 it said use 1 teaspoon sesame oil (oops ). I loved that you reminded cooks to work wisely and cut veggies while the chicken cooled. Thanks so much for the fantastic post.
