This salad is a refreshing full meal salad. When we grill chicken breasts We always grill extra ones so we can have this salad the next day. This is especially convenient when it a hot summer day, and you don't want to heat up the house when making dinner.
Prepare chicken breasts..you can use grilled or even rotissere chicken to make this dish easier. Be sure all ingredients are chilled before putting this salad together. Chicken can be grilled and let cool or chilled in the fridge.
Place all veggies in a large salad bowl. Just before serving, cut up chicken and add that, the almonds, water chestnuts, & mandarin oranges. So it stays crispy, immediatly before serving, stir in broken up, uncooked Top Ramin.
Pour salad dressing over salad, toss and serve. Enjoy!
