Ginger Sesame Chicken Salad

1 (5 oz) bag baby spinach
¼ cup sliced or chopped sweet onion (such as Vidalia or Walla Walla)
1 tablespoon sesame seeds, toasted
2 cups shredded cooked chicken
½" piece of fresh ginger, grated
1 tablespoon soy sauce (I used La Choy)
1 tablespoon rice vinegar
2 tablespoons sesame oil
1 clove garlic, minced

     Shave carrots into strips with a vegetable peeler.   Place carrot strips in a large bowl and add spinach, onion, sesame seeds and chicken to bowl.  Set aside.
    In a small bowl combine remaining ingredients.  Whisk well to combine or process in a blender.  Pour dressing over salad and toss to coat.  Divide into desired amount of servings.
