Chicken Salad Oriental from Betty Crocker's Good and Easy Cookbook

1/4 cup vegetable oil
3 TBs sugar (I used honey)
2 TBs red wine or seasoned rice vinegar
1 TBs soy sauce
1/4 lb. Chinese pea pods, strings removed (1 cup), cut diagonally in half
3 cups coleslaw mix
1 can (10 oz.) chunk light chicken, drained
1/2 cup sliced almonds, toasted

Mix oil, sugar, vinegar and soy sauce in large bowl. Add remaining ingredients: toss to coat. Serve immediately.

Yummy. I thought I could have throw in some pineapple. Also, since I wanted this to be an all in one meal I put some rice to the side. The supposed 4 servings is a bit over ambitious, so it could be beefed up, but not the sauce (that's where all the calories are).
