Pineapple-Sesame Dressing: In a screw-top jar combine pineapple juice, vinegar, water, soy sauce, sugar, sesame oil, and pepper. Cover and shake dressing mixture well. Chill and set aside.
In a large bowl toss together the mixed greens, desired fresh vegetables, red cabbage, and green onion. Break uncooked ramen noodles into small pieces; add to salad.

Broil 4 inches from heat for 10 to 12 minutes or till no pink remains, turning once and brushing with soy mixture. Remove chicken from heat; cool slightly. Cut chicken into bite-size strips; add to vegetable mixture.
Shake dressing and pour over the salad; toss to coat. Sprinkle sesame seed over all. Garnish with chive blossom flowers, if desired. Serve immediately.
