This 30-store Hawaiian-themed chain of restaurants is known for its hand-made burger buns, specialty sandwiches and taco platters with names like Shorebird, Pelican, Sandpiper, Baja, and Northshore. Some people, though, go to the Islands just for the China Coast salad. Its a huge bowl filled with sliced chicken breast, lettuce, red cabbage, julienned carrots, fried noodles, sesame seeds, mandarin orange wedges and chives, and then tossed with this top secret dressing. Many diners think the dressings so good they ask for extra and discreetly smuggle it home. No more smuggling required. Now, with this simple formula, you can make your own clone at home and use it on any of your favorite bowls of green.

First time I tried this was straight out of the many cookbooks I have of yours. Literally, just wanted to drink it with a straw. Love it on our Chinese Chicken Salad with a few cranks of fresh black pepper and sprinkled with toasted sesame seeds! It is, by far, our favorite salad dressing ever. Can't go wrong with this recipe!!

This is just like the Islands dressing in my opinion. I like it a little better because I use sugar substitute instead of the sugar since we are watching our sugar intake. I have been making it for years!
