  • Yield: 4 1x




  • 2 heads romaine lettuce chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped carrots
  • 1/2 cup chopped zucchini
  • 1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper
  • 1/2 cup chopped peanuts
  • 1/2 cup crispy wonton strips
  • 1 cup cooked chicken, chopped


  • 1 tablespoon creamy peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon Asian sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar


  1. To make dressing, find a small jar with a tight fitting lid. Put the peanut butter into the jar, and microwave for 15 seconds, or until the peanut butter is melted. This helps it dissolve into the other ingredients.
  2. To the melted peanut butter, add soy sauce, rice vinegar, sesame oil, vegetable oil and brown sugar. Place the lid on the jar, and shake well until ingredients are well combined.
  3. To assemble the salad, place the lettuce, carrots, zucchini, pepper, peanuts and wonton strips, and chicken into a large bowl. Pour the dressing over the salad ingredients and toss well to coat. I started with half the dressing, and added more a little at a time. Store leftover dressing in the refrigerator.
