I love Chinese chicken salad and this recipe is great. However, for some reason, brown sugar kills the acidity of rice vinegar, so this is best made with white sugar (I know it's not healthy, but...). The first time I made it, I had doubts but I stuck with brown sugar and the dressing came out kind of bland. So, next time, I made it with white sugar, and it came out fantastic! Also, as other reviewers have suggested, vegetable oil can easily be reduced to half (combination of 2 tbsp of vegetable oil and 1 tbsp of sesame oil worked great for me). I was too lazy to make the noodles myself, so I bought a packet of fried wonton strips from the store. I also added mandarin oranges, sliced almonds, and shredded carrots. I made it with Romaine lettuce (just because I like Romaine better) and it was delicious. It is now my favorite salad!!
