Prepare dressing by combining all dressing ingredients except vegetable oil and sesame seeds in a blender*on high speed. Slowly add oil to mixture
(to create an emulsion). Add sesame seeds and blend for just a couple seconds. Pour dressing into a covered container (such as a dressing cruet)
and chill until needed. (1 1/2 CUPS DRESSING) Rub each chicken breast fillet with oil, then lightly salt and pepper each piece. Grill on
medium/high heat until done. Chill chicken breasts in refrigerator. When chicken is cold, build each salad by first arranging about 4 cups* of* iceberg
lettuce in the bottom of a large salad bowl or on a plate. Arrange a cup of red leaf lettuce on the iceberg lettuce. Dice each chicken breast into bite-
size pieces and sprinkle the pieces from each one over each salad. Arrange about 1/3 cup of mandarin orange wedges on each salad. Next, sprinkle
about 1/4 cup of rice noodles and 1/4 cup of roasted sliced almonds on top of each salad. Add desired amount of sesame dressing and serve.
