I am really starting to get the feel of spring. It’s getting me to want more spring type food. This recipe was one I found on Good Stuff Maynard. It’s a recipe from Shanna K. I usually always like her recipes. I did change the recipe a little to fit my family’s tastes. It is a delicious salad. The chow mein noodles and sugared almonds were an excellent addition. This would be great to serve at a bridal shower or baby shower too! I served with the recipe I have for 30 minute rolls.
Chow Mein Chicken Salad
4 cups cooked chicken, diced or shredded
2 cups diced celery
3 green onion, diced (I used green tops only)
1 can mandarin oranges (drained)
1 small can pineapple tidbits (drained)
chow mein noodles
sugared almonds (as many as you’d like, I like lots)
*to toast just place 2-3 Tbsp. sugar in a skillet with slivered almonds , heat until almonds are
toasty brown (and then remove quickly so they don’t burn!)
1 1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 Tbsp. yellow mustard
Combine all ingredients except almonds and noodles. Add enough dressing to blend. You probably won’t need all the dressing. Add the almonds and noodles and additional dressing right before serving (so they are crispy!).
