Substitution
Six cups of any combination of salad greens can be used instead of the head lettuce and romaine.
Success
Be sure to tear the greens by hand instead of chopping with a knife. A chemical reaction between the greens and the metal knife will cause the edges of the greens to brown.
Variation
For Crunchy Chicken Mandarin Salad, make salad as directed. Divide among 6 individual serving plates. Top each serving with a grilled boneless skinless chicken breast, sliced (warm or cold). Sprinkle each salad with 2 tablespoons wide or regular chow mein noodles.
