Servings: 4


  • 1 bag of cole slaw mix
  • 1 bag chopped romaine lettuce or 1 head of romaine lettuce chopped
  • 1/4 cup of slivered almonds
  • 3 tbsp of toasted sesame seeds I buy these in a container already toasted and ready to eat
  • 1 package of crunchy wonton noodles.
  • Ingredients for dressing:
  • 1 cup of mayonnaise or substitute lowfat yogurt
  • 1/4 cup of soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp of toasted sesame oil optional
  • 1/4 tsp of powdered ginger or freshly grated ginger optional
  • 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.
