Chow Mein Chicken Salad

-From Real Mom Kitchen

This is really yummy. But if you don't plan on eating all of it in one sitting only add the wonton noodles and almonds to as much as you're going to eat. Otherwise they get soggy and their really gross.

4 cups cooked chicken, diced or shredded
2 cups diced celery
3 green onion, diced (I used green tops only)
1 can mandarin oranges (drained)
1 small can pineapple tidbits (drained)
chow mein noodles
sugared almonds (as many as you'd like, I like lots)
*to toast just place 2-3 Tbsp. sugar in a skillet with slivered almonds , heat until almonds are
toasty brown (and then remove quickly so they don't burn!)
1 1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 Tbsp. yellow mustard

Combine all ingredients except almonds and noodles. Add enough dressing to blend. You probably won't need all the dressing. Add the almonds and noodles and additional dressing right before serving (so they are crispy!).
