Tao Tao Chicken Salad recipe desired

santacruzfoodie | Jan 22, 201209:53 AM     9

I love the chicken salad at Tao Tao in Mountain View, CA. Have been going there for over twenty years just for the salad. I recently moved from Los Gatos to Aptos, south of Santa Cruz, so I won't be able to enjoy this on a whim anymore, (I would feel too guilty making the drive all the way to Mountain View JUST to satisfy a craving). Does anybody know how they make their dressing? The salad ingredients are pretty simple: shredded fried chicken cutlet, shredded iceburg lettuce, cilantro, green onion (I think), crispy bean thread, sesame seeds and chopped peanuts. Their fresh hot mustard is also a must to add, and I have some dried in the refrigerator to mix-up for such occasions. But what's their vinaigrette?
Any ideas? Please help!
