Crab Rangoon Salad with a Sweet Chili Vinaigrette
I wanted to get creative with a way to use up the leftover crab rangoons I had from Sunday night. I thought they would be perfect in a healthy salad with a fresh sweet chili vinaigrette. Turns out, my idea for this salad was a great one.
This salad is crisp, sweet and delicious. I put red peppers and strips of carrots into mine, along with a mix of greens and crispy romaine lettuce. You can customize the toppings however you would like.
After I finished photographing this salad, I started eating it and realized it needed a little something extra. I sprinkled some sesame seeds on top and they added just the right amount of nuttiness to make the flavors balanced and perfect.
You're going to love this salad. The sweetness from the homemade sweet chili vinaigrette makes it addicting. You'll be making crab rangoons often just to make this salad.
