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.
Once 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.
