Allison's Chinese Chicken Salad

This is again from my friend Allison. Those dietitians always have the best recipes! My kids think the fried wantons should just be eaten plain.

1/2 c almonds (I have done whole, sliced or my favorite caramelized in a little sugar and butter)
1 can mandarin oranges (large or small depending on how much you like them)
3 chicken breasts grilled and then cut up and marinated in terriyakki sauce
3 green onions, sliced
1 head romaine or red leaf lettuce
1 inch stack of wontons cut into 1/2 inch strips. Fry in a single layer in a small amount of hot oil. Flip after a few seconds, remove when both sides are golden. Drain on paper towels.

Mix all the salad together when you are ready to eat. Toss with dressing of: 2 Tbsp sugar, 1/2 tsp pepper, 1 tsp salt, 1/2 c oil, 3 Tbsp white vinegar and a dash of red pepper sauce if you like.

This does not keep so plan to feed 6-8 people or eat really big plates!
