Oriental Chicken Salad

This was based on a copycat recipe for Applebee’s Oriental Chicken Salad.  I’m not sure where it came from, since it was just a scribble on an index card from a long time ago.  I’ve adjusted it to our liking, and it’s one of my favorite meals.   I know I’m a bit of a salad junkie, but at least I’m a discerning salad junkie.  Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go add this to my menu for the week.
4 cups chopped Romaine lettuce
2 cups shredded red cabbage (green is okay too)
2 cups chopped Napa cabbage
1 cup shredded carrots
1/2 cup sliced green onions
1/2 cup sliced almonds
1 cup chow mein noodles
1 bunch fresh cilantro, chopped
about 3-4 cups sliced chicken tenders (you could use premade if you like)
Toss everything together in a large bowl.
3 T honey
1 1/2 T rice wine vinegar
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 tsp dijon mustard
1/8 tsp sesame oil
Whisk together, serve tossed with salad or on the side.
*We don’t like alot of dressing, but you could double this if need be for your tastes.
