Fixed this salad for the second time's da bomb! I used sesame oil in the dressing, love that taste and the noodles give it that crunch. It's a winner.

If you can get rice noodles instead of the chow mein noodles, that's what Applebee's uses. We like them better. Another thing we like to do with this recipe is add a small can, drained, of mandarin oranges.
