Applebee's Oriental Chicken Salad

This was our dinner tonight. It really does taste like what you order in the restaurant. It is so good and so fast! Perfect for summer...unlike the weather we're having in Utah today.

4 breaded chicken breast fillets (I use Tyson)
1 romaine heart
1 1/2 c. coleslaw mix (or finely shredded cabbage)
1/3 c. toasted almond slivers or slices (blanched almonds)
1/2 c. chow mein noodles

1/3 c. vinegar
1/2 c. sugar
3/4 tsp. salt
1 tsp. dry mustard
1 tsp. horseradish
1/4 c. spanish onion, diced
1/2 c. canola oil

Cook chicken fillets as directed.

To make dressing, combine everything but the oil in a blender of food processor and process until liquified.

Continue to blend and slowly drizzle in the oil until blended.

Make coleslaw with the cabbage and the dressing first and top it with the lettuce, almonds and noodles. Then cut up the chicken and add to salads.

This recipe looks yummy and easy. I'm nervous about using the horseradish in the dressing, does it make it too spicey or does it help to balance with the sweet?
