Sesame Salad Recipe

This delicious sesame salad combines sesame salad dressing, grilled chicken and pasta. Of course, the chicken doesn’t necessarily have to be grilled; you can use any kind of cooked chicken. It is also a way to use up leftover cooked chicken. For this recipe, the dressing is where it’s at. The dressing is pretty much your classic sesame salad dressing using ingredients such a sesame oil, rice vinegar, sugar, and soy sauce. This is a very simple recipe that takes little time to prepare. Enjoy.

    I started making this recipe, but I probably must be doing something wrong because it definitely doesn’t look this good. It tastes great however.

    Amazingly delicious!! My husband and I made this meal after we did a six mile run. It was great b/c we needed something fast and we knew we could count on you Bobby! The only thing I changed was I put in 1/4 cup of veggie oil instead of 1/2 (We like to cutback sometimes:)!). The outcome was awesome! My husband said it was a party in his mouth! (you can take that however you want but it made me laugh!) Thanks for this tasty recipe!

    I tried this tonight and it was very good. My salad was a little lighter and I’m wondering if it’s the soy sauce I used.
