    In small bowl, mix all dressing ingredients except oil with wire whisk. Gradually add oil, beating until well blended. Drizzle dressing evenly over salad. Top with chow mein noodles.

  • For a bit of extra sesame flavor, use 1 teaspoon sesame oil instead of the soy sauce in the dressing.
  • Look for wide chow mein noodles for a fun garnish for the salad.
