I have been meaning to try this recipe since I saw the beautiful photo on the front page of Zaar. We really loved this salad. I loved the dressing!!! I put the leftovers in wraps for the lunch box! I baked my wonton wrappers, although I bet frying them would be awesome as well. This is a simple dish with a complexity that is wonderful! Thanks homegirl!

Very, very good. The dressing is very tasty. I'll probably make a different marinade for the chicken next time, but otherwise I highly recommend it. I didn't have wonton wrappers so I used crispy chow mein noodles instead.
