Chinese Salad Recipe

Lucky for me I have several sister-in-laws who love to cook and provide great recipes for family gatherings. This is another recipe that I wasn’t too sure about, but was willing to try it. Not only did I fall in love, but so did my kids and my husband loves it as well. 

Make sure you don’t add the dressing until ready to serve. I add what I want to each persons individual bowl. NEVER mix with salad and put in refrigerator. Never refrigerate dressing.
