Ellen's notes for this recipe:
I had this incredibly good salad last night at Applebee's, and it is the best I've ever had. This is a copy-cat recipe. The dressing is supposed to be a very close duplicate, and it is SO good!

Directions

1
Blend together all ingredients for dressing in a small bowl with an electric mixer. Put dressing in refrigerator to chill while you prepare the salad.
2
Preheat oil in deep fryer or deep pan over medium heat. The temp of the oil should be around 350 degrees F.
3
In a small, shallow bowl beat egg, add milk, and mix well.
4
In another bowl, combine flour with corn flake crumbs, salt and pepper.
5
Cut chicken breast into 4 or 5 long strips. Dip each strip of chicken first into egg mixture, then into the flour mixture, coating each piece completely.
6
Fry each chicken finger for 5 minutes or until coating has darkened to brown.
7
Prepare salad by tossing the chopped romaine with the chopped red cabbage, Napa cabbage, and carrots. Sprinkle green onion on top of the lettuce.
8
Toast almonds in a small skillet over medium heat for 3 to 4 minutes, or until light brown. Sprinkle toasted almonds over the salad, then add the chow mein noodles.
9
Cut the chicken into small bite-size chunks. Place the chicken onto the salad forming a pile in the middle. Serve with salad dressing on the side.
10
Makes 1 dinner-size salad.

Thank you for sharing it, Lisa. Don't you just love the dressing? I am tempted to make double the dressing next time, just to have some on the side!
