Glass Noodle Salad with Chicken
I fondly recall the summers of my children's youth as a time of relaxed salad dinners, (that still had to fill them up), the kids being a little quiet at dinner time due to long days swimming and plenty of sun, and then fairly early evenings in front of the very early Survivor shows, with some ice cream later if they were still awake.
This is one of those salads. It does plenty of duty as a filler upper and add more of everything if you need it. I am lucky enough to have most of these herbs growing fresh, so it also comes in quite cheaply.
