Wonton Salad

Our playgroup started a new "dinner recipe" lunch once a month and I LOVED this salad that Nichole brought.
Instead of frying the wontons she puts them on a baking sheet that has been sprayed with Pam. Put them in a single layer and spray the tops with Pam. Brown the in an oven at 400.

1 pkg. wontons, slightly browned
2 cups cooked diced chicken
1 small head of lettuce (or 2 pkgs of ready to eat)
4 small green onions
1/4 c. toasted sesame seeds
1/4 c. or less parsley (optional)
A couple handfuls of peanuts or another nut (optional)
1 cup halved red grapes (optional)

1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
2 Tbsp. sugar
3 Tbsp. red wine vinegar
2 Tbsp. vegetable or olive oil
2 Tbsp. sesame seed oil

Mix greens, chicken, sesame seeds, parsley, nuts and grapes. Mix dressing ingredients in a separate container. Add dressings, onions and crushed wontons to the salad just before serving. (Do not mix it all together until the last minute - the wontons will go soggy and the entire salad will taste like an onion)

Dawn, if you love these types of salads try the Cooking Light "Best Chinese Chicken Salad Ever". It really is the best version I've ever tasted.
