Sesame Ginger Chicken Salad

It seems like everyone is telling me about some Asian Chicken Salad that they had recently and all of them include pasta. What? Where have I been? I had no idea that people put pasta with lettuce etc. I decided the other night that we pretty much needed to try out this crazy pasta/lettuce salad and guess what, it was good, Sesame Ginger Chicken Salad! I’ll now be experimenting with many more pasta/lettuce salads. It was light and the chicken was juicy and flavorful. I love that it was easy going  and because of the pasta it filled you up rather quickly too.
