I will definitely make this again. This is the first time I have used iceberg lettuce in years and it is the right type for this salad. The only thing I omitted was the almonds, otherwise followed the exact proportions. I added the chow mein noodles after adding and tossing the rest of the ingredients with the dressing. They stayed nice and crunchy that way.

Excellent salad...can be very portable---mix all except dressing in a big zip bag and put the dressing in a container and serve it at work or family gathering at the last minute- I have added cashews and it works great also---i do roast the sesame seeds and almonds for about 15 minutes in oven--gives a great taste

Because I wasn't too interested in a 700+ calorie salad, I simply put the lettuce on a plate, and added a little of each of the rest of the ingredients, e.g. one slice of crumbled bacon, a pinch of noodles etc etc. I bet this would be delicious finished off with some 'Hot Bacon Dressing' from this site! Thanks, Teri!
