Asian-Style Summer Salad and Salad Dressing Recipe

During the summer months we eat a lot of salads here in our home...our family just loves salads! When it comes to making salads, I like to offer a wide variety of them so that we don't get tired of eating them.

This recipe is what I call an Asian-Style salad because it utilizes chow mein noodles, water chestnuts and sesame seeds. Below you will find the recipe to make the salad as well as the recipe to make the delicious salad dressing.
