Rotisserie Chicken - I get it from Costco
1 or more heads of lettuce
Cucumber
Toasted Sesame Seeds
Cilantro
Chopped Green Onion - if desired
Rice Vinegar - I use Trader Joes Seasoned Rice Vinegar
Salad dressing - Asian sesame dressing, a sweet vinaigrette, or a light sweet home made

Carefully, lightly toast sesame seeds on a piece of aluminum foil under the broiler or in a toaster oven.

Slice the lettuce into about 1/4 inch strips with lengths of about 3-4 inches. Peel half of the cucumber then run a knife down the length twice to quarter the peeled half. Slice the cucumber in about 1/4" thick quarters. Slice chicken into chunks/pieces that are easy to pick-up with a fork. Keep skin attached for flavor. Dampen mixture with rice vinegar and stir together.

When ready to serve; sprinkle toasted sesame seeds on top, clip cilantro into salad with scissors so leafs are whole and stems are chopped. Add chopped green onions if desired. Pour on favorite salad dressing and toss salad. Add more rice vinegar if desired.

This dish is good anytime and is great for large parties. Just add more salad.
