Ingredients

2 tablespoons soy sauce, sodium reduced
2 cloves garlic

2 teaspoons ginger
fresh grated
1 teaspoon chinese hot mustard
*
½ cup rice vinegar
½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
*
2 each scallions, spring or green onions
finely minced
½ teaspoon sea salt
½ cup canola oil

2 teaspoons sesame oil
1 ½ cups carrots

1 ½ cups sweet red bell peppers

3 pounds broccoli florets
6 ounces water chestnuts
drained, sliced
1 tablespoon sesame seeds
toasted
4 ounces wonton wrappers

Directions

In a medium bowl mix the soy sauce, garlic, ginger, green onions, mustard, rice wine vinegar, crushed red pepper, and salt. Whisk to blend.

While continuing to whisk, gradually add the peanut or canola oil and sesame oil until emulsified.

Add the carrots and bell peppers and toss. Cover and refrigerate overnight to allow the flavors to blend and penetrate into the carrots and peppers.

The next day steam the broccoli florets until just tender. Add the remaining ingredients except the wontons, toss gently and allow to chill.

Before serving. Cut the wonton wrappers into thin strips. Gently fry, stirring to separate the wonton strips until crispy.

Top the salad with the crispy wonton strips and serve.
