Chinese Chicken Salad

Mike introduced this to me when we first got married.  I think it is a recipe his family made when he was growing up.  We really like it!

Chinese Chicken Salad

3 chicken breasts, cooked
fresh ginger root (to taste, chopped into tiny pieces--ginger root can be strong if not small pieces)
1 heat iceberg lettuce, torn or shredded
1 bunch green onions, chopped
slivered almonds
1/4 c. sesame seeds
Chinese noodles (uncooked)

4 Tbs sugar
4 tbs spice wine vinegar (any vinegar will work here but we usually use Apple Cider vinegar)
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 cup oil (I always use the 1/2 cup and then always think it is too much when we eat it so you could probably put in less oil...try it and see what you like)

Shred cooked chicken.  Pour a mixture of soy sauce and sugar on chicken (Make mixture to personal taste).  Soak this mixture together while you add all other ingredients together.  Put chicken with soy and sugar mixture into lettuce mixture.  Either serve dressing as a side or toss salad with dressing just before serving.
