1bag chopped romaine lettuceor 1 head of romaine lettuce chopped
1/4cupof slivered almonds
3tbspof toasted sesame seedsI buy these in a container already toasted and ready to eat
1package of crunchy wonton noodles.
Ingredients for dressing:
1cupof mayonnaiseor substitute lowfat yogurt
1/4cupof soy sauce
1tbspof toasted sesame oiloptional
1/4tspof powdered ginger or freshly grated gingeroptional
Water to thin out if necessary
On a large platter, empty your cole slaw bag and mixed lettuce bag on to the platter, tossing it all together until evenly mixed. Now add your crunchy wontons.
Sprinkle your sesame seeds over top.
Next, place your slivered almonds in a small pan over medium heat for 5 minutes tossing occasionally to get them lightly toasted. Remove from heat let cool.
For the dressing, in a medium bowl, mix together your Mayonnaise (or low fat plain yogurt), olive oil, soy sauce and toasted sesame oil (if using this). If the dressing seems to thick, add 1 tbsp of water at a time until it reaches a desired consistency.
Next, take your cooled almonds and add that to your salad. Drizzle your salad with a little bit (or a lot) of your dressing.
Serve the salad with the extra chow mein noodles and remaining dressing on the side.
