Asian Chicken Salad

asian chicken salad
I loved the flavors and the crunch of this "salad" from The Recipe Club. Next time I'll just add some shredded lettuce as well to make it a little more salad-y. The dressing was awesome though!

Ingredients:
1- 16 oz. bag coleslaw
*4-6 cups torn romaine lettuce
5 green onions, chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
1 red pepper, chopped
3 chicken breasts, cooked & cubed (I used 1 can chicken)
1/2 cup slivered almonds
1/4 sesame seeds (I thought I had some, but didn't)
1 cup cashews
2 packages Chicken flavor Ramen noodles, uncooked & crushed, seasoning reserved
{Ginger Sesame Dressing}
3/4 cup oil
1/4 cup sugar
2 TBSP rice vinegar
3 TBSP soy sauce
3/4 tsp. dark sesame oil
2 packages Ramen noodle seasoning packet
1/4 tsp. pepper
1 tsp. minced fresh ginger
1 tsp. dry mustard

Directions:
Scatter almonds, cashews, sesame seeds & crushed uncooked ramen noodles on a cookie sheet. Bake at 375 degrees for 8- 10 minutes. Watch closely so they don’t burn. Remove from oven & cool.
In a large bowl mix coleslaw, lettuce, green & red peppers, onions & chicken. Stir until mixed.
In a separate bowl, mix all of the dressing ingredients. Whisk together until sugar is dissolved. Pour dressing over salad & mix well. Add cooled nut mix just before serving & toss one more time.
