Crunchy Asian Salad With Shrimp and Scallops

READY IN: 22mins
Recipe by Vicki in CT

A local restaurant serves a salad similar to this and after a lot of experimenting I came up with a pretty good imitation. I stop on the way home from work at the local Chinese restaurant to pick up the fried wonton strips. Don't let the number of ingredients scare you off as it assembles quickly and easily. You can make the dressing ahead of time and store in the refrigerator.

This was really easy! I did make the dressing a day ahead of time. I added diced cucumber, carrots and yellow pepper just because I like the added color. Made for ZWT4 - Chic Chefs. Thanks for posting!
