Oriental Chicken Salad


This Oriental Chicken Salad would be a great dish for a potluck.  I remember when I was like 15 ish or something like that and I went to a camp at a college. I stayed the first night with a girl I had grown up with and her roommates. We went on a little BBQ/picnic and a girl made a salad with crunched up top ramen noodles. I thought it was so weird. Years later my girlfriend gave me this recipe and it’s delicious. Very light, but flavorful.
