1/2 tsp. soy sauce
1/4 tsp. minced garlic

To prepare dressing, add lemongrass to a small bowl with remaining dressing ingredients; set aside. Coat chicken breasts with honey and sambal oelek; cook on a well-oiled grill over medium heat for about 5 minutes on each side or until cooked through. Remove from grill and let cool slightly; cut into bite-size strips. Divide romaine equally between 2 salad plates and top with chicken and remaining ingredients. Whisk dressing and drizzle over salad. Serve with grilled mini egg rolls, if desired.
