Sesame Chicken Slaw Salad

I tasted many types of Asian chicken salad in California. When I moved back to Georgia, I wanted more. Here’s a gingery-sweet recipe using wonton strips. —Michelle Mulrain, Evans, Georgia

    AMAZING!!!! I made 1/2 the recipe for my husband and me. I coudn't find wonton strips at my grocery so I used an Asian salad topping made by Marzetti (found in salad dressing isle), it worked perfectly. I think crunchy lomein noodles or sesame sticks would work also. I used Ken's Steakhouse Asian Sesame Lite salad dressing and it was terrific. A keeper for sure!!
