The blogger whose site I found it on used a rotisserie chicken. I had made a roast chicken for supper one night and just used the left-overs to make the salad. I also used whole wheat pasta in place of the regular.
And to make it even simpler, I cheated. I used a bottle of Kraft Asian Toasted Sesame Dressing which is currently my FAVORITE salad dressing.
The recipe made a BUNCH! I had two huge bowls of salad after I was finished. I also have a sweet friend with a new baby, so I shared my salad abundance with her. If I was going to make it again and just for us, I would halve everything except the oranges and almonds.
