5 tablespoons lemon juice
1/4 cup vegetable oil
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
2 teaspoons ground ginger
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

1 (6.5-ounce) package or 4 cups washed salad greens
3 cups shredded, cooked chicken (about 2 to 3 boneless chicken breast halves)
1 cup matchstick or shredded carrots
1 cup fresh sugar snap pea pods, cut in half
1/2 cup sweetened dried cranberries
1/4 cup toasted slivered almonds (optional)
6 (8-inch) flour tortillas

Cooking Directions:
