Notes

*Note: Make extra wonton strips and serve with duck sauce as a snack.

Ingredients

  • 1/8 Cup canola oil
  • 12 wonton wrappers
  • 1/2 Teaspoon salt, plus more to taste
  • 1/2 Cup almonds
  • 6 Cups shredded Napa cabbage
  • 2 Cups chopped baby bok choy
  • 1 Cup shredded or julienned carrots
  • 1 bunch scallions, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1/2 Cup stemmed and sliced sugar snap or snow peas
  • 1/4 Cup chopped cilantro
  • 2 Tablespoons brown sugar
  • 3 Tablespoons soy sauce
  • 4 Tablespoons rice wine vinegar
  • 2 Teaspoons sesame oil, or to taste
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 Teaspoons freshly grated ginger
  • Juice from 1/2 lime

Directions

Heat the canola oil in a small 6-inch skillet over medium heat. Cut each of the wonton wrapper squares into 5 strips. Once the oil is hot, cook the strips in batches until golden. Season with salt, to taste, and transfer to a plate lined with paper towels. Set aside.*

Heat a small skillet over medium heat. Cook the almonds for 3-4 minutes until golden, shaking the pan frequently and keeping a close eye on them so they don’t burn. Season with salt, to taste, and set aside.

Place the cabbage, bok choy, carrots, scallions, snow peas, and cilantro in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk together the sugar, soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, sesame oil, garlic, ginger, lime juice, and salt. Just before serving, toss the vegetables with the dressing and serve with the crunchy wontons and almonds on top.

Asian Shopping Tip

Staples of Asian cuisine such as ginger, daikon, rice vinegar, and spicy chile sauces like Sriracha add bright, fresh flavors without lots of fuss.

Asian Cooking Tip

Sriracha has good heat but also has flavor - its mild sweetness comes from sun-ripened chili peppers as well as sugar and garlic.
