Salad

Heat 1 1/2 inches oil in large saucepan until hot but not smoking (325°F to 350°F).

Divide the wonton strips into three or four batches. Do not crowd the pan.

Fry one batch at a time, stirring occasionally until crisp and light golden brown.

Drain on paper towels and set aside. Repeat till all are done.

Just before serving, gently toss all the remaining salad ingredients with the crispy wontons in a large mixing bowl with enough of the dressing to coat.

Line 6 salad plates with lettuce leaves and divide the salad equally among the plates. Pass additional dressing.

Note: Hoisin Sauce is available at Asian markets and most supermarkets.
