How To Make oriental chicken salad

  • 1
    Combine chicken, water chestnuts, snow peas, celery, green onions, bean sprouts and just enough salad dressing to coat everything. You don’t want the salad swimming in dressing.
  • 2
    Serve chilled. Garnish with slivered almonds and extra green onion slices before serving.
  • 3
    * To toast almonds: Place almonds in skillet over low heat for about 10 mins, or until lightly browned, stirring once in a while. When they are done, they will smell nutty and toasty.
