This is an old recipe. There are countless variations of Chinese Chicken Salad recipes. Though slightly modified from the original we recevied this one is a classic. My wife got the recipe at a pot luck she attended at work over 35 years ago. We ate it frequently when our kids were small. They probably grew weary of eating it so much. It is relatively cheap and makes a week night meal for 4 people reasonably quickly. It is tasty! I'm sure many others are posted on CES but this is our version. As for wine; the sweetness of the dressing holds up to something a bit sweet. We opted for Jacuzzi 2009 Gilia's Vernaccia from Sonoma Valley.

    Hi Dad: I never tired of this salad. We eat it in my house often! I hate to admit it; hearing that this recipe is as old as me makes me feel old!
