Oriental Salad Dressing

Oriental Chicken Salad dressing recipe
Oriental Chicken Salad

Since the oven is still not working (the repair man said he should have it fixed this Friday), I had to come up with something other than blueberry cheesecake bars to post this week. I’ve had this salad dressing recipe for some time, but for lunch yesterday I decided to try something different.

Instead of breading the chicken tenders, I marinaded the chicken in a mixture of soy sauce, rice wine, ginger, garlic, sesame oil, and little bit of red pepper. Thankfully the broiler is still working, so we were able to cook the chicken. My family agreed it tasted marvelous.

The original dressing recipe came in the same e-mail that I got my General Tso’s Chicken recipe from. It’s the dressing for Applebee’s Oriental Chicken Salad. We usually serve the it over salad with rice noodles and sliced almonds.

Dressing before and after being mixed (I think it’s lumpy because I didn’t let the ingredients sit at room temperature. Still tastes good, though).

1/3 cup honey

3 tablespoons rice wine vinegar

½ cup mayonnaise

2 teaspoon Grey Poupon Dijon mustard

¼ teaspoon sesame oil

Prepare dressing ingredients by mixing in a small bowl. Refrigerate until ready to use.
