Chinese Chicken Salad

One of my favorite lunches is Chinese Chicken Salad. When I was little and as I grew up, my mom and I would go shopping and every time we would go get lunch at Nordstroms Cafe. We would always get their Chinese Chicken Salad and it was so yummy. Now when I make it at home, I think about those memories of having lunch with my mom.
Myy recipe isn't like Nordstrom's but just one that we've created over time. It's quick and simple and so so good!

Chinese Chicken Salad 

1 head of Romaine Lettuce (amount depending on the size salad you want. 1 small head per person)
1/4-1/2 cup celery, diced
1/4-1/2 cup cucumber, peeled and diced
Raman noodles, crushed into small pieces, sprinkle desired amount, save the rest
1 small can mandarin oranges
1/2-1 Chicken Breast, grilled or sautéed, cut in strips of cubed
1/4 cup toasted almonds

For Dressing:
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 teaspoon pepper
4 Tablespoons rice vinegar
2 Tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon sesame oil

-The ingredients for salad part are for a single large serving of salad. The dressing is for multiple salads, great for saving.
-I put all the ingredients for dressing in a mason jar and shake to combine. Pour over salad and toss to coat all ingredients and enjoy!
