Nanny's Chow Mein Chicken Salad

Nanny, my kids' great grandmother on their dad's side, shared this recipe with me 18 years ago when she lived with us. This is a nice salad that's easy to make, light, healthy, & is a wonderful way to use up any left-over chicken you may have In the fridge.

Nanny was a cook in the school cafeteria, and this is a salad she made for the teachers once a week. It's a nice dish for a busy weekend, summer lunch, or nice addition to a pot luck.

I even make the salad without the chicken to have as a side dish. It's versatile, & just about any chicken goes well with it.

Hope you enjoy it!
