Straight from Betty Crocker, here is a delicious light salad that you have to try! The dressing is fantastic and the ramen noodles give it the perfect crunch! I always try to keep cooked chicken in the house just for things like this, so I give it a quick chop and voila! This makes the perfect amount for our family, or it would be great for a pot luck. Enjoy!
|5||cups shredded romaine lettuce|
|1||package (3 oz) Oriental-flavor ramen noodle soup mix|
|2||cups finely chopped cooked chicken|
|1||can (11 oz) Green Giant® Niblets® white shoepeg corn, drained|
|1||large tomato, finely chopped|
|2||medium green onions, finely chopped (2 tablespoons)|
|1/2|| cup coarsely chopped unsalted dry-roasted peanuts (I usually omit this) |
|3/4|| teaspoon grated gingerroot (I sometimes use ground ginger) |
|1/4||cup vegetable oil|
|3||tablespoons white vinegar|
- In bottom of large (3-quart) clear glass serving bowl, arrange lettuce. Discard seasoning packet from soup mix; coarsely crush noodles. Layer noodles and remaining salad ingredients, in order listed, over lettuce.
- In small jar with tight-fitting lid, shake dressing ingredients until well blended. Pour over salad. Serve immediately. (I like to whisk my ingredients together in a bowl instead of shaking, but it's just a personal preference)
