Cook: How to Make a Crunchy Salad Topper

I eat a lot of salad.
I like a lot of different textures and my flavors in my salads
and am always experimenting.
One salad topper that I have used for years and years (and years)
is so simple and adds a nice crunch.
Did I mention...it is super EASY!

504 main

  • Wonton wrappers (there are a million in a package - or so it seems...I used 1/2 package for this batch)
  • Knife
  • 1 tsp. Salt
  • 1/2 Tsp. Pepper 
    • (You can also switch out seasonings for different flavors!
  • 1 teaspoon (half of the package) - 1 tablespoon (whole package) Olive Oil  
    • (TIPS: You can also substitute other oils like sesame, grapeseed, etc.)

Cutting Board
Cookie sheet
Foil or parchment paper

Make It!
  • Preheat oven to 375F
  • Stack a few wrappers at a time on the cutting board
  • Slice the wrappers (through all layers) into 1/8"-1/4" strips (you can make them smaller too)
  • Place in a large bowl and toss with Olive Oil, salt and pepper.
  • Place in a single layer on a cookie sheet  (as you can see in the photo, I did not lay mine out perfectly but did my best to keep them not to bunched up) and bake for 10 minutes, checking and maybe flipping with a spatula halfway through.
  • Let cool
Top your salad with this crunchy goodness...
Or eat them as a snack like my girlie did! I had to hide them!

    I LOVE those little crunchies on my salads. They're particularly great on Chinese Chicken Salads.

  4. I wouldn't have thought to use those! I'm definitely going to try it for a different twist.
