This salad is not your ordinary salad. Created at Cannon’s

restaurant, the Oriental Chicken salad contains items not often seen

in green salads. The Thai Peanut Vinaigrette is not a spicy dressing,

like most people associate Thai food with spiciness. The chow mein

noodles act as croutons for crunchiness.

2 cups Green Cabbage shredded

5 cups Romaine Lettuce shredded

1 cup Green Peas thawed from frozen

½ cup Carrots grated

½ cup Celery chopped

¾ cup Bamboo Shoots

4 Chicken Breast, 5 ounce skinless, grilled and cut into strips

Chow Mein Noodles

Thai Peanut Vinaigrette (See Below)

Mix cabbage, lettuce, peas, carrots, celery, and bamboo shoots in

large bowl. Put into 4 chilled bowls. Put 3 ounces of the Thai Peanut

Vinaigrette on top of salad. Place chicken on top of salad and cover

with a handful of chow mein noodles.
