Ingredients:  
Ingredients:  
3 cups shredded chicken breast
1 head ice berg lettuce
1 heart of romaine lettuce
1 cup grated carrot
1 package small wontons, fried and crumbled
1 bunch of green onions
1 package toasted slivered almonds
1/4 cup toasted sesame seeds


Dressing:
4 tbsp sugar
1 tsp black pepper
4 tbsp red wine vinegar
2 tsp Accent seasoning (yes...it's MSG, but it's just not the
same without it!)
2 tsp salt
1/4 cup salad oil


Directions:
Directions:
Roast the chicken and shred. I like to season it with salt,
pepper, garlic powder, onion powder and a dash of ginger. I
fork shred it rather than chop it.

Chop the lettuce into bit size pieces.

I actually roast the almonds and sesame seeds...it's just not
the same otherwise.

Fry the wontons in vegetable oil and drain on paper towels.
Place in large ziploc bags and crush into bite size
pieces...but not too much...you don't want to completely
crumble them.

Cook the sugar, pepper, salt, Accent and vinegar over low
heat until all ingredients are dissolved. Let the mixture cool.
Add salad oil and blend well until thickened. I put it all in a
blender or use an emersion blender.

Toss lettuce, chicken and carrots together. Add seeds,
almonds, wontons and dressing just before serving.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This is THE MOST time intensive salad you will ever make,
with all of the roasting and toasting, frying and chopping,
cooking and blending...it's a lot of work, but it is SOOO
worth it! I make it when we have company over and we are
tri-tipped out or just need a new take on chicken. It makes
plenty. I usually make a double batch and save 1/2 un-
tossed for the next day...because if I am gonna work that
hard for a meal, we are gonna eat it all week! But it is worth
it! An Olson Family favorite!
