The first time we made this salad there was too much dressing this time I cut the dressing in half and it was just right. We also used chow mein noodles instead of wonton wrappers and used a bag of lettuce. Read More

Hmmm. It's edible. Frying wonton wrappers was harder than I had expected. They burn quickly. The rest of these ingredients were alright but really nothing to get excited about. There was WAY too much dressing; a person could definitely cut that in half. Read More

This was sooooo good! It's one of the best things I've made from this website and I find about 95% of my recipes from here! This is the kind of salad served at a restaurant and they charge 11... The dressing is excellent! The nutritional value is a little scary but as a dietitian I'm sure it's from the wontons and you can omit those if you want. Also I think the almonds and olive oil in the dressing add fat - but the good fat! EXCELLENT! Read More

We really enjoyed this one! This recipe made a ton of dressing so instead of mixing it up before serving we just had it as well as the oranges and water chestnuts available on the table so that we could customize our salads. I also added some baby spinach to the lettuce which was really good. Great summer salad! Read More

Very good! I used chow mein noodles in place of fried wontons - mostly because it makes it simpler. The salad was wonderfully flavorful and a hit with the whole family. I did cut back both on the chicken and the dressing. Half a recipe of dressing was plenty and we aren't big meat eaters so one monster chicken breast did it for us. Thanks for sharing! Read More

This was a great salad! My husband is a meat and potato mand and doesn't really like having salads for dinner but he loved this one. Next time I would use chow mein noodles instead for the convenience. Read More

Delicious and refreshing summer salad! I used homemade teriyaki marinade which I think put it over the top. I kept everything else the same except decreased the salad dressing since it made a ton. This is a definite keeper for summer grilling! Read More
