These Mini Asian Salad Cups are not only cute and easy-to-make, but they are a sneaky way to get some veggies in, especially when entertaining.

I have been reading a book that has inspired me to eat better.  It has motivated me to eat 9 servings of fruits and vegetable per day.  Initially that seems like it might be hard to do, but it really isn’t. Especially since I love salads.
 
Problem is, not everyone at my house likes them as much as I do.  So, what’s a girl to do?  I decided to create cute little appetizers using the Asisan Sesame Vegetable Salad Kit, one of five delicious Eat Smart Gourmet Vegetable Salad Kits.

These little salad cups are super simple to make.  You start by lightly spraying a muffin cup with non-stick spray.  Then place two wonton wrappers in each cup and press down on the bottom and sides to form the cup.  Then lightly spray the cups and bake in an oven that has been preheated to 350 degrees for about 10 minutes.

Wontons for making Mini Asian Salad CupsOnce the cups have turned a nice golden brown, remove them from the heat and allow them to cool. (I place mine on a cooling rack.)  While they are cooling, I open the bag of salad and pour the greens into a large bowl.  Since the cups are little, I tear the greens into smaller pieces and then add the included dressing mix.

I then take a small amount of salad and place it in the wonton cups.

I like to add clementine or mandarin segments to some of them for an extra little burst of citrus.

I could make 2 dozen appetizers with each bag, but I only make 1 dozen so that I can have a big salad for my self later.

Eat Smart Gourmet Vegetable Salad Kits

Please don’t ask me to tell which is my favorite salad kit, because I don’t think that I could choose just one.  They’re all delicious and unique in their own ways.  The kits are an easy, convenient, and delicious way of getting in some of our daily servings of veggies.  You know those evenings when you don’t feel like cooking or you don’t have any side dishes planned?  Pull a kit out of your fridge and BOOM!  Problem solved.  Oh, and those morning when you are in a rush and don’t have time to make your lunch?  Bring a kit with you to work.

logo-es-mdThese kits naturally make great entrees, but they are also good as appetizers (like these cute Mini Asian Salad Cups) and side dishes.  They’re also great to have for dinner parties – just combine a couple of packages and serve – everything is included in the package.  Click here to find the nearest location that carries them.
