Won Ton Chicken Salad

Receipe stolen from Michelle Morrison
This is one of those things we eat the day I've gone to the grocery store or Sam's Club (chicken and salad is much cheaper there). I also cut up fresh fruit (today was strawberries) and buy a loaf of French Bread.

1/2 Cup Vegetable Oil
1/2 Cup White Vinegar
1/2 Cup Sugar (I use Splenda)
Fresh Ginger (peel and grate - as much as you want)
Salt and Pepper

Combine and shake. If you plan ahead, make this earlier in the day...the longer it sits refrigerated, the better the flavors will blend.

Other Ingredients:
Bag of Baby Spring Mix
Rotisserie Chicken
Won Ton Wraps (in the refridgerated section of the produce)
Pine Nuts

Lightly toast the pine nuts in a small frying pan. Cut the won tons into desired shape (I do triangles) and fry in a small frying pan of vegetable oil. Do one or two at a time, it doesn't take on paper towel to soak up extra oil. Freeze the unfried won'll only use a bit of the package. Tear into the chicken...the goal is bitesize pieces (no skin, no bones). I don't like to dress the whole salad because it will last a couple days and makes for a great lunch the next couple of days. Piece it together and enjoy!

Sam did not participate in dinner today...salads are just not her thing. So, here is a clip of her eating Lo Mein (which is another Blake and Sam favorite...maybe another night).
