Who is Susie?  She’s my sister- my wonderful older sister.  She was married young, so I often visited her and let her make me dinner.  This was one of her super easy favorites as a young bride.

You can put it together so easily and serve it over lettuce leaves.  I vividly remember the crunch of the toasted almonds and chow mein noodles.  All these years later, I still love it!
