Chinese Chicken Salad

1 head romaine lettuce 
1 head red leaf lettuce 
grilled or boiled chicken ( use as much as you think you will need depending on how many you are making it for, that pretty much goes for all the ingredients)
linguine noodles ( i usually use about 1\2 a package and break them in half)
1 green pepper ( you could really use any kind of pepper you want)
pea pods
chow mein noodles
you can add any other vegies you want

wash and cut up both heads of lettuce
cook linguine ( instructions on package)
cut the pepper
cut end off the pea pods (optional)
put it all together in a big bowl

1/2 cup vinegar
1/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon celery seed
1 cup vegetable oil (don't use olive oil)
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1/2 bag frozen onions
mix it all together (it usually tastes better if you let it sit in the fridge for a while before putting it on the salad, i usually try to make it the night before)

when you're ready to eat, add the dressing and the chow mein noodles (if you add the chow mein before this point they will be soggy)
