Combine all dressing ingredients and shake well.

Mix the salad ingredients except for the chicken breast and the lettuce. Add the dressing, mix well.

to plate:

Place a layer of lettuce on a plate, top with the salad and the chicken strips.

Note: I like to prepare this salad for a crowed. I line a large, shallow salad bowl with lettuce, top with the salad and the chicken.
