Polynesian Chicken Salad

1 head romaine chopped
4 stalks celery sliced thin (cuisenart)
4 green onions sliced (green part only)
2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds
2 cups cooked and cubed chicken
1/2 (12 oz.) package wonton sliced into strips and fried golden brown (350 F. in deep fryer)

In a bowl, combine lettuce, chicken, onions, sesame seeds, and celery.
Just before serving, toss with desired amount of Polynesian Salad Dressing and top with fried wonton strips.
Can also add a can of mandarin oranges, drained well.

Polynesian Salad Dressing
4 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
4 tablespoons rice vinegar
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/4 teaspoon sesame seed oil

I have found that Brianna 's Ginger Mandarin Dressing contains these same ingredients (plus a few more) and tastes great. It's a little time saver, especially if you do go to the effort of deep frying your own won tons.
