Light Fare!

A former friend of mine shared this recipe with me and I just love it!  It's meant to be for an appetizer or a side for a party or something like that, but I often make it on a Sunday and eat it all week long for lunch.  It's healthy, cheap and soooo good!
Chinese Chicken Salad

2 chicken breasts, boiled, cold and cubed
1 medium head of lettuce, broken up, rinsed and dried
1 medium sweet onion, minced
4 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds (heat them up in a skillet and then transfer them out of the pan or they'll just keep cooking)
La Choy Chow Mein noodles

Mix in a jar or a shaker:
1 c vegetable oil
3/4 c apple cider vinegar
1/2 c sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
2 teaspoons accent

Shake it up until the sugar dissolves, then pour over the salad and toss. If you're transporting it, pour the dressing before you're ready to serve instead, or the lettuce gets wilty.
