Mandarin Chicken Salad

this is my new favorite salad:
Chicken breast, marinated in Yoshida's for at least an hour, then grilled
Romaine lettuce, chopped
Spinach (optional)
handful craisins
2 Tbs. chopped scallions
1/2 c. grated carrot
One 11 oz. can mandarin oranges
sliced sweet pepper (optional)
slivered almonds (optional)
Dressing--put all the following ingredients in a bowl and whisk together:
1/3 cup rice wine vinegar
1 teaspoon minced garlic (or 1/4 tsp. garlic powder)
1 teaspoon minced ginger (or 1/4 tsp. ginger powder)
2 tablespoons canola OR olive oil
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons chili-garlic sauce or chili sauce (less or more to desired level of spice)
