Clone of Applebee's Oriental Chicken Salad

I have been making this recipe for years and it is one of my favorite salad recipes. You could literally drink the dressing it is so good. We are having company tonight and this is what I am making. Just in the mood for a good ol' salad. I usually don't make the chicken from scratch anymore but just stop at Hardee's or somewhere and buy chicken fingers and cut up and add to the salad. To me, Hardee's has the BEST chicken fingers on the market right now. Enjoy!
