Step 1

Prepare dressing by combining all dressing ingredients except vegetable oil and sesame seeds in a blender on high speed. Slowly add oil to mixture (to create an emulsion). Add sesame seeds and blend for just a couple seconds. Pour dressing into a covered container (such as a dressing cruet) and chill until needed.

Rub each chicken breast fillet with oil, then lightly salt and pepper each piece. Grill on medium-high heat until done. Chill chicken breasts in refrigerator until cold.

When chicken is cold, build each salad by first arranging about 4 cups of iceberg lettuce in the bottom of a large salad bowl or on a plate.

Arrange a cup of red leaf lettuce on the iceberg lettuce.

Dice each chicken breast into bite-size pieces and sprinkle the pieces from each one over each salad.

Arrange about 1/3 cup of mandarin orange wedges on each salad.

Next, sprinkle about 1/4 cup of rice noodles and 1/4 cup of roasted sliced almonds on top of each salad.

Add desired amount of sesame dressing and serve.

This recipe yields 4 large salads.
