Chineese Chicken Salad

We made Chinese Chicken Salad Wednesday and I was really happy with how it turned out! The only bummer was I couldn't find won ton wrappers at the store to bake for the little crispy strips. Definitely something we'll do next time.
The measurements on the dressing were non-existent, we just kept tasting it until it was perfecto!

Chopped Cilantro
Chopped Red Cabbage
Chopped/torn Romaine Lettuce
Grilled Chicken Breast cut up into bite sized pieces (marinate in dressing for extra flavor)
Chopped green onion
Thinly Sliced Almonds
Won-ton wrappers cut into strips and baked- (couldn't find them at the store I happened to be at)
Roasted sesame seeds
Shredded Carrots
Rinse and prepare all ingredients and toss in a large bowl
Top with dressing

About 3 Large spoon fulls of Hosin Sauce
A small (like tip of a butter knife) spoon full of Chinese Hot Mustard
Rice Vinegar, Sesame Oil and Low Sodium Soy Sauce (just kept adding bits of each until the taste & texture were right)
A dash of sesame seeds
Whisk with fork until all ingredients are well combined

This looks and sounds great! I love your description of you threw together the dressing with no real amounts - totally how I would do it too.
