Chopped Asian Salad

Is it possible to become addicted to a technique?  I love, and I mean love, creating chopped salads. And, in case you didn’t already know, I have an ongoing love affair with Asian Inspired cuisine.

I decided to create a Chopped Asian Salad.

For added crunch I baked wonton wrappers in the oven with a bit of butter and salt to get crispy wonton strips.  NO FRYING necessary.  How cool is that?

I baked 6 wonton and used about 1 teaspoon of butter for all six wrappers.

Four wonton wrappers are 2 PP.

Prep time:
Total time:
Serves: 6
My cheat for this salad is using Newman’s Own Lite Sesame Ginger Salad Dressing
Ingredients
  • 1 head green leaf lettuce, chopped (I use scissors to chop mine)
  • 1 cups shredded cabbage {I used the store-bought coleslaw mix}
  • 1 carrot, shredded or julianned
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 green onion, sliced on the bias
  • 1.8 cup cilantro, chopped
  • 8 oz. drained mandarin oranges {about 1 cup}
  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds
  • crispy baked wonton strips(about 1/2 square per person) 4 to 6 strips
Instructions
  1. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients for salad
  2. Add1 tablespoon of dressing per serving
  3. Top with more almonds and a few wonton strips
Notes
2 PP per serving

What a great salad combination.  I am sure you can create your own homemade Sesame Ginger dressing, but sometimes, I just like convenience.  Especially on the weekends.

This salad is addicting and I know that if I made extra, I would have had seconds, and maybe even thirds.

The hubby loved the baked wonton strips and he wanted to eat them as a snack.  the same way you would eat a bag of chips.  Not a bad substitute.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
