Asian Spinach & Chicken Salad

This was just the ticket considering the not-so-welcome heat wave we've had this week.

Asian Spinach and Chicken Salad

1 bag of spinach
2 C. cooked cubed chicken
8 oz. cooked and drained bowtie pasta
2 oranges
1 avocado
1 C. chow mein noodles
1 T. sesame seeds

2 T. rice wine vinegar
2 T. brown sugar
1 1/2 T. soy sauce
1 1/2 t. grated fresh ginger

Combine above dressing ingredients, then drizzle in 1/4 C. veg. oil while whisking. Season with 1 tsp. salt.

Toss spinach, chicken and pasta with dressing. Top with slice avocado, orange segments, chow mein noodles and sesame seeds.

(I cut off each end of the oranges, trimmed off all the peel, sliced it into rounds, then quartered each round.)
