This was tasty, everyone liked it, but the lettuce was hard to manage. Maybe it was just a smallish head of lettuce... The miso soup wasn't as flavorful as I would normally make it, but okay.

Super easy and tasty. I added a lot of salt to the chicken and cooked the mushrooms, too. Nobody complained. Made the dressing without honey and it was delicious.
