Expert Tips

  • Six cups of any combination of salad greens can be used instead of the head lettuce and romaine.
  • Be sure to tear the greens by hand instead of chopping with a knife. A chemical reaction between the greens and the metal knife will cause the edges of the greens to brown.
  • For Crunchy Chicken Mandarin Salad, make salad as directed. Divide among 6 individual serving plates. Top each serving with a grilled boneless skinless chicken breast, sliced (warm or cold). Sprinkle each salad with 2 tablespoons wide or regular chow mein noodles.
