Chinese Chicken Noodle Salad

My grandma has been making a version of this salad for as long as I can remember. And I have been obsessed with it as long as I can remember. Of course, I put my own spin on this classic, lightening it up a bit. This is great for work lunches, a easy summer dinner or as a potluck dish. It gets better each day and travels well.
